The case of a 33-year-old man is presented, who acutely developed disturbance of consciousness, symptoms of raised intracranial pressure and unilateral neurological signs. The underlying lesion was a hemorrhagic tumor located in the left lateral ventricle. On histological examination, the surgically resected mass proved to be a central neurocytoma, a benign neuroectodermal neoplasia. Difficulties in differential diagnosis by imaging technics and histopathology render this unusual lesion worth publishing. To the best of our knowledge, no similar report on this recently described rare entity has been published in Hungary.
