Department of Pathology, Kyung Hee University Hospital, College of Medicine, Kyung Hee University Seoul, Republic of Korea.

A 42-year-old male presented with a history of headaches for the previous 2 weeks. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain showed a 3 cm-sized well-defined, enhancing mass in the atrium of the right lateral ventricle. The tumor comprised two heterogeneous components: approximately one-third of the tumor exhibited complex and delicate papillary fibrovascular cores lined with uniform cuboidal-to-columnar epithelial cells, whereas the remaining part was seen as a solid sheet comprising ovoid-to-spindle cells with plump cytoplasm, which occasionally had a whorling pattern.

Intra-fourth-ventricular choroid plexus papilloma miming ependymoma.

Clin Ter 2021 Mar;172(2):99-103

Department of Radiology, Hanoi Medical University, Ha Noi, Vietnam.

Abstract: Choroid plexus papilloma (CPP), a low incidence central nervous system (CNS) tumor, typically develops as an intraventricular neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the choroid plexus. Infratentorial CPP is predominantly clustered in adults with roughly 70% in the fourth ventricle, while supratentorial CPP commonly found in the lateral ventricles, is the most frequent location in children. The clinical and imaging features of CPP are not typical and may induce the misdiagnosis as other types of primary brain tumors. Read More

Cold Spring Harb Mol Case Stud 2021 Feb 19;7(1). Epub 2021 Feb 19.

Department of Pediatrics, Michigan Medicine, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109, USA.

Choroid plexus tumors are rare pediatric neoplasms ranging from low-grade papillomas to overtly malignant carcinomas. They are commonly associated with Li-Fraumeni syndrome and germline mutations. Choroid plexus carcinomas associated with Li-Fraumeni syndrome are less responsive to chemotherapy, and there is a need to avoid radiation therapy leading to poorer outcomes and survival. Read More

The Choroid Plexus Is Permissive for a Preactivated Antigen-Experienced Memory B-Cell Subset in Multiple Sclerosis.

Front Immunol 2020 26;11:618544. Epub 2021 Jan 26.

Molecular Neuroimmunology Group, Department of Neurology, University Hospital of Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany.

The role of B cells in multiple sclerosis (MS) is increasingly recognized. B cells undergo compartmentalized redistribution in blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) during active MS, whereby memory B cells accumulate in the CSF. While B-cell trafficking across the blood-brain barrier has been intensely investigated, cellular diapedesis through the blood-CSF barrier (BCSFB) is incompletely understood. Read More

Microorganisms 2020 Dec 10;8(12). Epub 2020 Dec 10.

Pediatric Infectious Diseases, University Children's Hospital Mannheim, Medical Faculty Mannheim, Heidelberg University, 68167 Mannheim, Germany.

Echovirus-30 (E-30) is a non-polio enterovirus responsible for meningitis outbreaks in children worldwide. To gain access to the central nervous system (CNS), E-30 first has to cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB) or the blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier (BCSFB). E-30 may use lipid rafts of the host cells to interact with and to invade the BCSFB. Read More

The radiotherapy utilization rate in pediatric tumors: An analysis of 13,305 patients.

Radiother Oncol 2021 01 8;154:220-226. Epub 2020 Oct 8.

National Cancer Institute, Cairo University, Egypt.

Purpose: Although the radiotherapy utilization rate (RUR) is determined for most adult cancers, it is seldom reported in childhood tumors, particularly in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) where the majority of pediatric cancer patients reside. This study aims to investigate the real-life RUR for pediatric tumors in a large LMIC center.

Materials And Methods: The electronic files of patients treated at a single institution during 2010-2017 were reviewed and the RUR was defined as the percentage of patients who received at least one radiotherapy (RT) course from the total number of patients. Read More

Int J Mol Sci 2020 Aug 29;21(17). Epub 2020 Aug 29.

Pediatric Infectious Diseases, University Children's Hospital Mannheim, Medical Faculty Mannheim, Heidelberg University, 68167 Mannheim, Germany.

Echovirus-30 (E-30) is responsible for the extensive global outbreaks of meningitis in children.

The blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier (BCB) is important in maintaining brain manganese (Mn) homeostasis. This barrier consists of a single layer of epithelial cells, connected by tight junctions, that restrict the passage of nutrients to only allow molecules to be carried through the membrane by a transporter. These epithelial cells are polarized with asymmetrical blood-facing and cerebrospinal fluid-facing sides. Read More
