[en] Colloid cysts of the third ventricle are rare, benign cysts of endodermal origin. Between 1989 and 1999, eight patients with this lesion (five females, three males), with a mean age of 40.5 years (range 20-54), were identified out of 1354 operated for tumours of the central nervous system. Among the eight, two were familial. They were half sisters 38 and 28 years-old, who were diagnosed to have colloid cysts of the third ventricle on CT scanning. Transcortical excision yielded 10 and 15 mm sized colloid cysts, respectively. Moreover, both sisters developed a multinodular goiter associated with these congenital tumours. The second sibling developed hyperprolactinemia associated with macroprolactinemia. Pregnancy was only possible after bromocriptine treatment. These cases provide further evidences that colloid cysts probably have an autosomic recessive pattern of inheritance with variable penetrance.
