Central neurocytoma is a rare intraventricular brain tumour that affects young people and presents with increased intracranial pressure secondary to obstructive hydrocephalus. Typically, it has a favourable prognosis after complete resection. In some cases the clinical course could be more aggressive. In this report, we describe a case of recurrent central neurocytoma treated with radiosurgery after two consecutive relapses. An asymptomatic radionecrosis developed after that. At the moment the patient is in complete recovery. Finally, we discuss the role of postoperative irradiation in the treatment of this rare tumour.
