    Two-thirds of ependymomas arise in the infratentorial or intraventricles, whereas one-third are located supratentorially. But supratentorial "cortical" ependymomas are very rare. We report a case of a cortical ependymoma in a 21-month-old boy. The patient presented with simple partial seizures. This tumor was located in the postcentral gyrus and he had gross total excision. Microscopy and immunohistochemistry showed grade II differentiation ependymoma.
