Subependymomas of the lateral ventricles are rare tumors. We present two patients with subependymomas of the lateral ventricle, who underwent gross total resection of the tumor via transcallosal approach. The patient, with increased Ki-67 labeling index had recurrence of tumor two years after the initial operation. We emphasize at the risk of recurrence which is probably correlated with Ki-67 labeling index.
