Colloid cysts (CC) are rare cystic lesions with a wide clinical spectrum including the asymptomatic cysts that are coincidentally diagnosed and the cysts leading to sudden death. The symptoms in CC are usually caused by obstructive hydrocephalus. The most common symptom for CC is headache. CC rarely cause intracranial herniation and death. In this study, we aimed to present our experience in the diagnostic and treatment process of a 57-year-old male patient with CC who presented to the emergency service with sudden severe headache, vomiting, and confusion.
