Papillary glioneuronal tumour is an entity described as grade I neuronal-glial tumour by the World Health Organization. Headaches, seizures, vomiting, language or visual disturbances, and hemiparesis are the most common clinical findings. This tumour typically presents as cystic with enhancing mural nodule in the cerebral hemisphere. In this paper, we reported a case of a papillary glioneuronal tumour in a young adult whose magnetic resonance imaging revealed a solid tumour in the cerebral aqueduct. The tumour was totally resected surgically 13 years ago. The histological and immunohistochemical examination determined the diagnosis. No further therapy was necessary. Currently, the patient presents no neurologic signs or symptoms and there is no radiologic evidence of tumour relapse. The case of papillary glioneuronal tumour reported here displayed unusual location and radiologic features. The long duration of follow-up of this case with no tumour relapse enhances that the preferred management for this type of tumour is its total surgical resection.
