We reported a case of huge cystic trigeminal neurinoma. The patient was 35 year old female with trigeminal nerve dysfunction and hemiparesis. The computed tomography disclosed a huge cystic low density mass at the temporal base and suprasellar cistern that extended to cerebellopontine cistern through the tentorium, and enlargement of Meckel's cave on coronal scan. Through the infratemporal and retromastoid suboccipital approach, the cystic content was aspirated and cyst wall was removed. The cystic change of neurinoma may be due to mucoid degeneration and liquifaction.
