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

Transcallosal Interforniceal Approach for a Large Choroid Plexus Tumor in a 4-Month-Old Boy: 2-Dimensional Operative Video.

Oper Neurosurg (Hagerstown) 2020 Sep;19(3):E295

Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery, Department of Surgery, Texas Children's Hospital, Department of Neurosurgery, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.
