A 14-month-old female presented to the emergency department with a sudden onset change in mental status following a fall from a couch. Several weeks prior to the accident, it was noted that the patient had mild macrocephaly and was losing developmental milestones including her ability to walk. In the emergency department, it was observed that the patient was lethargic, had right hemiparesis, as well as a sluggish and slightly dilated left pupil. An emergent computed tomographic (CT) scan revealed a 10 cm x 8 cm hemorrhagic tumor arising from the left lateral ventricle. After the CT scan, the child became comatose and required intubation while in the emergency department. A Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan of the brain was ordered. The MRI revealed a large, hemorrhagic, left intraventricular heterogeneous tumor with multiple stages of bleeding. The patient was promptly taken to the operating room, and an emergent left parietal craniotomy and gross total resection (GTR) was performed.
