Entrapped temporal horn is due to obstruction of one lateral ventricle in the region of trigone causing dilatation of the temporal horn. The isolated temporal horn presents itself as mass lesion. Intraventricular hydatid cyst presenting as an entrapped temporal horn has not been reported in literature till now. We report two cases of intraventricular hydatid cyst causing entrapped temporal horn.
