Congenital intracranial meningiomas are rare lesions. We present a case of congenital intraventricular cystic meningioma, initially characterized with fetal MRI and confirmed postnatally with histopathology. To our knowledge, this is the first in vivo description of a congenital meningioma with fetal MRI. The fetal MRI was able to characterize the lesion as an atypical intraventricular mass which was separate from the choroid plexus, differentiating the mass from a choroid plexus neoplasm. An intraventricular location of the meningioma is more commonly described in pediatric than in adult patients. Meningioma should be considered in the differential for an intraventricular congenital lesion, and fetal MRI is advocated for lesion characterization.
