Primary CNS lymphoma (PCNSL) is rare malignant B cell lymphoid tumor of brain which predominantly occurs in supratentorial region in periventricular location. Majority of PCNSL are of DLBCL type and idiopathic in etiology. Here we are reporting a case of primary CNS lymphoma, DLBCL involving extremely uncommon intraventricular location. Central neurocytoma, subependymal giant cell astrocytoma, choroid plexus tumors and meningiomas are the common diagnosis at this site. Aim of reporting this case is to bring awareness of unusual intraventricular location of primary CNS lymphoma which should be kept in mind before considering gross total excision of lesion.
