Papillary glioneuronal tumor (PGNT) is a newly described mixed glioneuronal tumor, recently included in the World Health Organization classification of central nervous system tumors. We report morphologic and immunohistochemical characteristics PGNT of the pineal region extending into the third and lateral ventricles in a four-year-old male child and reviewed all the cases reported in the international literature till date.
