Interactions of antisera to different Chlamydia and Chlamydophila species with the ribosomal protein RPS27a correlate with impaired protein synthesis in a human choroid plexus papilloma cell line.

Immunol Res 2017 12;65(6):1110-1123

Neuroanatomy, University Medical Center Göttingen, Göttingen, Germany.

Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and the Chlamydophila species (CS) Chlamydophila pneumoniae (CPn), and Chlamydophila psittaci (CPs) are suggested to induce autoantibodies causative of several human autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The aim of the present study was therefore to identify cellular protein interaction partners with antisera to CT (α-CT) or CS (α-CS) and to identify functional consequences of such interaction in vitro. As detected with a commercial first trimester human prenatal brain multiprotein array (hEXselect, Engine, Germany), the most frequent interaction partner with both α-CT and α-CS was the ribosomal small subunit protein RPS27a.

Treating Cerebrospinal Fluid Rhinorrhea without Dura Repair: A Case Report of Posterior Fossa Choroid Plexus Papilloma and Review of the Literature.

World Neurosurg 2017 Dec 1;108:990.e1-990.e9. Epub 2017 Sep 1.

Neurosurgery Department, CHRU de Tours, Tours, France; Brain and Imaging, Université François-Rabelais de Tours, UMR Inserm U930, Tours, France.

Background: Choroid plexus papilloma revealed by nontraumatic cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea has only been described 5 times, to our knowledge, in the literature. The challenges in this situation are to recognize CSF leak, to rapidly understand the pathophysiology of the leak, and to choose the best treatment strategy in emergency. We report an original case of posterior fossa choroid plexus papilloma revealed by CSF leak. Read More

Spinal drop metastasis from a benign fourth ventricular choroid plexus papilloma in a pediatric patient: case report.

J Neurosurg Pediatr 2017 Nov 25;20(5):471-479. Epub 2017 Aug 25.

UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland, California.

Choroid plexus papillomas (CPPs) are typically benign tumors that can occur in any age group but are more commonly found in pediatric patients. Although these tumors are benign, there are several reports in adult patients of distant metastases present either at the time of diagnosis or occurring months to years after initial resection. Here, the authors report the case of a 14-year-old boy who presented with symptoms of elevated intracranial pressure due to obstructive hydrocephalus that was caused by a large fourth ventricular mass.

Increased NG2 and SOX2 expression is associated with high-grade choroid plexus tumors.

Oncol Lett 2017 Aug 7;14(2):1802-1806. Epub 2017 Jun 7.

Department of Neurosurgery, Qilu Hospital of Shandong University and Brain Science Research Institute, Shandong University, Jinan, Shandong 250012, P.R. China.

The World Health Organization classification of choroid plexus tumors (CPT) includes three distinct grades: Choroid plexus papilloma (CPP), atypical choroid plexus papilloma (ACPP) and choroid plexus carcinoma (CPC). The molecular basis for these pathological distinctions may help to stratify tumors and provide an insight into the clinical behavior of CPTs. In the present study, the progenitor and stem cell markers neuron glia antigen-2 (NG2) and sex-determining region Y-box 2 (SOX2) were investigated as potential biomarkers that may distinguish between distinct CPT grades.

Atypical choroid plexus papilloma: spontaneous resolution of diffuse leptomeningeal contrast enhancement after primary tumor removal in 2 pediatric cases.

J Neurosurg Pediatr 2017 Sep 7;20(3):284-288. Epub 2017 Jul 7.

Neuro-Oncology Unit.

Atypical choroid plexus papillomas can metastasize in the form of leptomeningeal seeding. Postoperative chemotherapy is the recommended first-line treatment when gross-total removal is not achieved or in cases of disseminated disease. Here the authors report on 2 children with atypical choroid plexus papillomas and MRI findings of diffuse leptomeningeal enhancement at diagnosis, later presenting with spontaneous resolution of the leptomeningeal involvement after removal of the primary lesions.

A French retrospective study on clinical outcome in 102 choroid plexus tumors in children.

J Neurooncol 2017 Oct 4;135(1):151-160. Epub 2017 Jul 4.

Department of Hematology-Oncology, Children University Hospital, Toulouse, France.

The aim of this study was to review and describe therapeutic approaches in children with choroid plexus tumor (CPT) based on a nationwide series. The World Health Organization classification subdivides these rare tumors into three histological subtypes corresponding to three grades of malignancy: low grade (grade I) choroid plexus papilloma (CPP), intermediate grade (grade II) atypical choroid plexus papilloma (aCPP) and high grade (grade III) choroid plexus carcinoma (CPC). This retrospective study included 102 French children younger than 18 years, treated from 2000 to 2012: 54 CPP, 26 aCPP and 22 CPC. Read More

Incidental choroid plexus papilloma in a child: A difficult decision.

Surg Neurol Int 2017 26;8:86. Epub 2017 May 26.

Department of Neurosurgery, Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, New York, USA.

Background: Choroid plexus tumors (CPT) in the pediatric population are usually discovered in symptomatic patients often with symptoms of increased intracranial pressure, with hydrocephalus as the most common presentation, along with seizures, subarachnoid hemorrhage, or focal neurological deficit. Most CPTs are found to be benign choroid plexus papillomas (CPP), whereas a small number are intermediate and malignant choroid plexus carcinomas (CPC). Total surgical resection is the established definitive treatment for symptomatic CPP. Read More
