OBJECTIVE: Choroid plexus papillomas (CPPs) of the cerebellopontine angle (CPA) are extremely rare. In this article, we present a series of twenty-one cases operated on in the last eight years at our institution. METHODS: During the 8-year period from January 2008 to October 2015, we encountered 102 histologically established cases of CPPs, of which 21 located in the CPA region. Clinical profiles, radiological features, surgical procedures, intraoperative findings and outcomes were extracted from the patient records and neuroimaging data...

Pleuropulmonary blastoma (PPB) is a rare childhood tumor, often associated with germline DICER1 mutations and a risk for development of other benign and malignant tumors, a constellation termed DICER1 syndrome. A 1-year-old male was diagnosed with Type I PPB and screened regularly thereafter for detection of intrathoracic and intraabdominal disease. Ten months after diagnosis of PPB, he presented with headaches and vomiting. He was diagnosed with atypical choroid plexus papilloma, a lesion not previously reported with PPB...

Choroid plexus papillomas (CPPs) are uncommon, usually intraventricular, low-grade tumors, accounting for less than 1% of all intracranial neoplasms and 2-4% of brain tumors in children. Dissemination of CPPs to multiple levels of the neuraxis has been seldom observed. Thus far, only 26 adult patients have been reported in the English language literature. With some exceptions, disseminated CPPs have been observed in adults and involved multiple sites along the cerebrospinal fluid pathways. Occasionally, intraparenchymal extension has been documented, and secondary involvement of the suprasellar region has been reported in only five patients...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies, including a comprehensive study by National Cancer Institute, have shown that a significant increase in the incidence of childhood brain tumours makes them the most common paediatric tumour. The objectives of this study were to determine the frequency of central nervous system tumours in paediatric age group (0-12 years), and to segregate various morphologic types according to WHO classification. METHODS: The study included consecutive cases of central nervous system tumours diagnosed in children in the histopathology department at Federal Government Polyclinic, PGMI, Islamabad, during a period of 4...

Choroid plexuses (CPs) are structures involved in CSF production and cerebral regulation and present atypical glucose metabolism. In addition, CPs impairment may be related to Alzheimer disease (AD). In the present study, we present the first results pointing out glucose metabolism in the CP with dynamic fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (dynamic (18)F-FDG-PET). We studied 47 elderly adults who were classified into three classes: healthy subjects (HS), amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) and AD...

Choroid plexus tumours are rare, with a peak incidence in the first two years of life. The most common location is the lateral ventricle in children, while in adults it is the fourth ventricle. The most common clinical manifestation is the signs and symptoms of intracranial hypertension. They are histologically classified as plexus papilloma, atypical plexus papilloma, and plexus carcinoma. A review is presented on choroid plexus tumours treated in the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu between 1980 and 2014. A total of 18 patients have been treated...

BACKGROUND: Posterior fossa brain tumors are common in children. Symptoms typically develop when the tumors have reached sufficient size to cause compression of adjacent neural structures or cause obstructive hydrocephalus. Many tumors in this region originate from the tela choroidea and choroid plexus of the fourth ventricle. Enhancement of the fourth ventricular tela choroidea and choroid plexus is uncommon in children, and when such enhancement is present, it may represent early tumor growth...

OBJECT: Tumors leading to occlusion of the sylvian aqueduct include those of pineal, thalamic, and tectal origins. These tumors cause obstructive hydrocephalus and thus necessitate a CSF diversion procedure such as an endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV), often coupled with an endoscopic biopsy (EBX). Lesions located posterior to the massa intermedia pose a technical challenge, as the use of a rigid endoscope for performing both an ETV and EBX is limited. The authors describe their experience using a combined rigid and flexible endoscopic procedure through a single bur hole for both procedures in patients with posterior third ventricular tumors...

OBJECT: Because of their large size and high vascularity, complete removal of brain tumors in infants and young children is often difficult. In most cases the degree of resection is associated with prognosis. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy may facilitate resection by reducing the vascularity of the tumor. The authors evaluated the effectiveness of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in the management of these tumors. METHODS: The authors performed a retrospective review of infants and young children who underwent tumor removal after neoadjuvant chemotherapy...

Choroid plexus tumors are rare neoplasms that mainly affect children. They include papillomas, atypical papillomas, and carcinomas. Detailed genetic studies are rare, and information about their molecular pathogenesis is limited. Molecular inversion probe analysis is a hybridization-based method that represents a reliable tool for the analysis of highly fragmented formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue-derived DNA. Here, analysis of 62 cases showed frequent hyperdiploidy in papillomas and atypical papillomas that appeared very similar in their cytogenetic profiles...

BACKGROUND: Choroid plexus tumors are rare neoplasms that primarily occur in children. The use of the SEER (Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results) database allows for the analysis of the relationship between prognostic factors and survival. METHODS: We analyzed the SEER database to select pediatric patients (<18 years old) with histologically confirmed diagnoses of choroid plexus papillomas (CPP; WHO Grade 0), atypical CPP (WHO Grade I) and choroid plexus carcinomas (CPC; WHO grade III)...

REVIEW
Charlotte Dai Kubicky, Arjun Sahgal, Eric L Chang, Simon S Lo
There are close to 70,000 new cases of primary central nervous system tumors diagnosed annually in the United States. Meningiomas, gliomas, nerve sheath tumors and pituitary tumors account for 85% of them. There is abundant literature on these commonly occurring tumors but data from the literature on infrequently encountered tumors such as atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor, choroid plexus carcinoma, ganglioglioma, hemangiopericytoma, and pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma are limited. This review provides an overview of the clinicopathologic and therapeutic aspects of these rare primary central nervous system tumors...
