Choroid plexus tumours.

Wolff JE, Sajedi M, Brant R, Coppes MJ, Egeler RM - Br. J. Cancer (2002)

Bottom Line: Histology was the most important prognostic factor, as one, five, and 10-year projected survival rates were 90, 81, and 77% in choroid plexus-papilloma (n=353) compared to only 71, 41, and 35% in choroid plexus-carcinoma respectively (P<0.0005).Radiotherapy was associated with significantly better survival in choroid plexus-carcinomas.This should be followed by adjuvant treatment in case of choroid plexus-carcinoma, and a "wait and see" approach in choroid plexus-papilloma.

Young children and patients over 59 years of age have a worse prognosis as compared to the age classes in between (P<0.0005 log rank test). This included patients, in whom the observation time was >0, and in whom age at diagnosis was documented. Survival rates were calculated as Kaplan–Meier estimates.

This included patients, in whom the observation time was >0, and in whom age at diagnosis was documented. Survival rates were calculated as Kaplan–Meier estimates.

Mentions: When analysing age at diagnosis, the poorest survival was noted for those over 40 years of age, followed by those under 10 years of age, with the best outcome for those aged 10–40 years (Figure 3Figure 3
