We report eight years female child of symptomatic giant Rathke's cleft cyst extending from right parasellar, paraventricular region to right fronto-temporoparietal cortical surface which is an unusual site for Rathke's cyst. MRI Brain scans of a patient who presented with diminution of vision in the right eye with a headache and vomiting revealed a large cystic mass in right parasellar, a paraventricular region with peripheral enhancement and midline shift. In this case, we performed the right fronto-temporoparietal craniotomy with drainage and marsupialization of cyst wall. Histopathologically, it was inflamed Rathke's cleft cyst with focal epithelial metaplasia.
