Anaplastic ependymomas are World Health Organization (WHO) Grade III neoplasms with extremely rare cases. We describe a case of cerebellopotine angle (CPA) anaplastic ependymoma in a 42-year-old woman. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of an anaplastic ependymoma at CPA space in the literature. To fill this gap, we here describe this unusual case to provide more insight into this tumor.
