OBJECTIVE The authors report a novel surgical route from a superior anatomical aspect-the contralateral anterior interhemispheric-transcallosal-transrostral approach-to a lesion located in the subcallosal region. The neurosurgical approach to the subcallosal region is challenging due to its deep location and close relationship with important vascular structures. Anterior and inferior routes to the subcallosal region have been described but risk damaging the branches of the anterior cerebral artery.
