Subependymal giant cell astrocytomas (SEGAs) are slowly growing tumours corresponding to WHO grade I. They are intraventricular and usually occur in the setting of tuberous sclerosis complex. They often result in obstructive hydrocephalus. Treatment is usually restricted to surgical resection, recurrences are rare and long term prognosis is excellent. We present a series of three cases.
