Choroid Plexus Papilloma

Common Name(s)

Choroid Plexus Papilloma

Choroid plexus tumors are of neuroectodermal origin and range from benign choroid plexus papillomas (CPPs) to malignant choroid carcinomas (CPCs). These rare tumors generally occur in childhood, but have also been reported in adults. Patients typically present with signs and symptoms of increased intracranial pressure including headache, hydrocephalus, papilledema, nausea, vomiting, cranial nerve deficits, gait impairment, and seizures (summary by {5:Safaee et al., 2013}).

Choroid Plexus Neoplasms: Toward a Distinction between Carcinoma and Papilloma Using Arterial Spin-Labeling.
 

Author(s): V Dangouloff-Ros, D Grevent, M Pagès, T Blauwblomme, R Calmon, C Elie, S Puget, C Sainte-Rose, F Brunelle, P Varlet, N Boddaert

Journal: AJNR Am J Neuroradiol. 2015 Sep;36(9):1786-90.

 

Pediatric choroid plexus papillomas and carcinomas are highly vascularized neoplasms, which are difficult to distinguish with conventional imaging. We aimed to analyze the diagnostic accuracy of PWI, by using both pseudocontinuous arterial spin-labeling and DSC-PWI. We reviewed the ...
