    Abstract

    Colloid cysts of the third ventricle are rare central nervous system tumors that are a recognized cause of unexpected death in young, otherwise healthy adults and children. We report three adults and one child who died from colloid cysts of the third ventricle. Our report illustrates the difficulties of diagnosing these tumors premortem.
