A woman in her 30s presented with a 3-month history of bilateral blurry vision with transient visual obscurations and a 1-month history of tinnitus.

Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain demonstrated multiple cysts in the posterior fossa, including a large cyst inducing obstructive hydrocephalus at the level of the fourth ventricle measuring 1.2 cm × 1.6 cm in anteroposterior and transverse dimensions (Figure 2).
