A 75-year-old male presented to the hospital with concern for failure to thrive and generalized weakness. He also experienced a fall three weeks prior to presentation. A non-contrast head computed tomography (CT) scan showed an intraventricular hyperdensity at the left frontal horn of the lateral ventricle initially concerning for intraventricular hemorrhage. However, the non-dependent locations of the hyperdensity favored silicone oil migration from prior left intraocular silicone oil implant injection. Patient was also found to have an incidental craniopharyngioma.
