This report describes an intraventricular neurocysticercus cyst of the 4th ventricle with consequent hydrocephalus in an adult man. He was managed with anti-helminthic therapy and a 3rd ventriculostomy. Initial imaging showed the cyst within the 4th ventricle. At follow-up imaging a cyst was present in the 3rd ventricle and the 4th ventricle had returned to normal. It is postulated that the cyst 'migrated' from the 4th to the 3rd ventricle.
