What is causing this mass effect?

A 23 year-old male presented complaining of headaches, vomiting and photophobia. He had no history of neurologic illness. An MRI revealed obstructive hydrocephalus and a mass in the left lateral ventricle.

Do you recognise this condition?

Answer: This patient was diagnosed with hydrocephalus caused by ependymoma. He underwent a transfrontal operation and the tumor was completely resected macroscopically.
