Intraventricular tumors present a diagnostic as well as surgical challenge to all the Neurosurgeons. Pigmented tumors in the central nervous system are rare lesions and most commonly are meningeal melanocytic tumors or metastatic melanomas. Pigmented ependymomas are much rarer and only 8 cases have been reported in the literature yet. We here present a case of 37-year-old female who had an unusual presentation with CSF rhinorrhea; on further evaluation she was found to have an intraventricular tumor. Post-operatively she was found to have a rare variety of Intraventricular tumour- pigmented ependymoma.
