Unilateral lateral ventricular dilatation due to foramen of Monro stenosis or constriction can present with headache. Fundoscopy can be normal. This condition is congenital, radiological appraisal can disclose the diagnosis, and treatment depends upon the symptomatology. The condition can be treated well with insertion of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt.
