. Surgery We used a Storz device for ventricular endoscopy, approaching through the right Kocher’s point with a trephine, in the same projection as for an endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) once in the right lateral ventricle the thalamus-striate vein, choroid plexus, and the protrusion at the floor of the lateral ventricle produced by the NCC cysts in the AIF ( Fig. 2 ), which was fenestrated with bipolar coagulation up to the AIF ( Fig. 2 ). From here, some cysts began to appear and were removed with a Nelaton #8 probe, which allowed us to extract a greater volume

to red blood cells (2,000) on cell count. The differential resulted in 8% neutrophils, 65% lymphocytes, and 27% monocytes. Cultures were negative. Four days later, the patient underwent planned endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV). An intraoperative decision was made to also complete an endoscopic biopsy. Induction of general anesthesia, endotracheal intubation, and patient head fixation in a neutral 30° elevated position were completed in typical fashion. After the usual surgical preparation, a right frontal burr hole was made at Kocher’s point, and the dura
