We report a case of a large, heterogeneously enhancing, pathologically proven, supratentorial subependymoma in a 31-year-old male patient presenting with headache, nausea and vomiting as well as gait disturbances. Although most supratentorial subependymomas have distinctive MR features, our case demonstrated imaging findings that made it indistinguishable from other more aggressive malignant supratentorial intraventricular lesions. It is of paramount importance to consider supratentorial subependymomas in the differential diagnosis of supratentorial lesions, even if their radiological features were atypical.
