Uncommon presentation of choroid plexus papilloma in an infant.

Pandey S, Sharma V, Singh K, Ghosh A, Gupta PK - J Pediatr Neurosci (2016 Jan-Mar)

Bottom Line: Choroid plexus tumors are relatively rare primary brain tumors that arise from the epithelial differentiated tissue, majority being well-differentiated papillomas.In adults, fourth ventricle and in children, lateral ventricles are the most common site of these tumors.We reported a case of choroid plexus papilloma in the temporal horn of lateral ventricle in a female child who presented with the uncommon symptoms of sudden intraventricular hemorrhage and multiple episodes of seizure without symptoms of raised intracranial tension.

Figure 1: Computed tomography imaging showing hyperdense hemorrhagic lesion in the left temporal horn of lateral ventricle with hemorrhage in left lateral ventricle

Mentions: A 9-month-old female child presented with sudden loss of consciousness and multiple episodes of seizure in the emergency. Her vitals were within normal limits. Glasgow Coma Scale was E3V3M5. Computed tomography (CT) imaging showed hyperdense lesion measuring 3.6 cm × 3 cm in the left temporal horn of lateral ventricle [Figure 1] with features suggestive of left temporal horn hemorrhagic space occupying lesion with hemorrhage in left lateral ventricle. Contrast-enhanced CT angiography showed evidence of well-defined, strongly homogenous, enhancing polypoidal intraventricular mass lesion measuring approximately 30 mm × 38 mm × 33 mm in anterior-posterior, transverse, and craniocaudal axis, respectively, in temporal horn of left lateral ventricle with punctuate calcification and intense homogenous enhancement in arterial phase with persistent enhancement in venous phase. Evidence of mild to moderate dilatation of ventricles with intraventricular hemorrhage in left lateral ventricle was seen [Figure 2]. CT angioghaphy was suggestive of choroid plexus papilloma with intraventricular hemorrhage.
