Chordoid glioma of the third ventricle

Common Name(s)

Chordoid glioma of the third ventricle

Chordoid glioma of the third ventricle is a rare condition that is characterized by the presence of low-grade tumors (usually meaning slow growing and less severe) in the third ventricle of the brain. The four ventricles of the brain are connected cavities which produce cerebral spinal fluid. The fluid circulates and cushions and protects the brain and spinal cord. Choroid glioma of the third ventricle is more common in adults and females in particular. Symptoms include headaches and nausea, impaired vision, hormone imbalances, and trouble with the autonomic nervous system (affecting heart, sweat glands, bladder, intestines, etc.).

Chordoid glioma of the third ventricle is diagnosed using MRI imaging or CT scans of the brain. The best treatment option is surgery in order to completely remove the tumor. However, due to the location of these tumors, patients are at an increased risk of surgical complications. Therefore, it is critical to speak with your doctor in order to assess the best treatment.
