    Majority of ependymomas are infratentorial and intraventricular. Supratentorial and purely cortical extraventricular ependymomas are extremely rare and only five cases were reported. We report a 15-year-old male with left frontal cortical ependymoma. He had gross total excision of the lesion and...
