Abstract CASE REPORT: A 13-year-old boy presented with a history of intracranial hypertension. Radiologic studies revealed triventricular hydrocephalus secondary to a space-occupying lesion in the pineal region. Endoscopic third ventriculostomy was performed to treat hydrocephalus, and the lesion was biopsied. Complete resection of the tumor was subsequently performed. After a period of uncertainty, the diagnosis of papillary tumor of the pineal region was established. Tumor bed radiotherapy at a dose of 50 Gy was associated. With a follow-up of 15 months, the postoperative course was satisfactory with return to school and no residual tumor on magnetic resonance imaging. CONCLUSION: Papillary tumors of the pineal region constitute a rare entity, with a difficult diagnosis, an uncertain prognosis, and a high risk of local recurrence; they must be treated by a combination of surgery and radiotherapy. The only identified prognostic factor is the complete or incomplete nature of surgical resection. This article was published in Childs Nerv Syst and referenced in Journal of Clinical Case Reports
