The cysts of the anterior third ventrilce were first described by Wallman in 1858. These cysts have been thought to originate from a paraphyseal remnant in the telencephalic portion of the third ventricle, from a diencephalic ependymal pouch, or from the epithelium of the choroid plexus. Dandy reported 31 cases in 1933 where this condition had been found at necropsy and added 5 cases of his own in which surgical excision had been achieved with but a single postoperative death. Since Wallman's appeared before the age of 10 and in only 3 before the age of 2. We report a case of colloid cyst the third ventricle in the age of 23 months and the literature of this disease has been reviewed.
