Neurosurgical procedures in infants poses various challenges such as difficulty in venous cannulation, securing invasive vascular lines, difficult airway, controlling intra-cranial tension, managing large fluid shifts to positioning- related issues and temperature maintenance. We hereby present an case of a large intracranial space occupying lesion, suspected to be a hydatid cyst, which later turned out to be an infected ventricular cyst and intraoperative problems. A thorough preparation prior to operation of infected cystic lesion of the brain is required including anticipation of massive blood loss and its management. A slow decompression of the large cystic lesion should be done.
