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 3: A cauliflower-like vascular mass in the temporal horn of lateral ventricle with an attachment to the choroid plexus

Mentions: The patient underwent left temporoparietal craniotomy via superior sulcus approach to the lateral ventricle. A cauliflower-like mass was observed in the temporal horn of lateral ventricle with an attachment to the choroid plexus of the lateral ventricle which was vascular and nonaspirable [Figure 3]. There was hemorrhagic clot with fresh bleed in the ventricle. Total excision of tumor was done. Postoperatively, her condition did not improve in the next 3–4 days. A repeat noncontrast CT showed evidence of small extra-axial hypodense cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) attenuating area overlying frontotemporal lobe suggestive of subdural hygroma, dilated both lateral, third and fourth ventricles suggestive of moderate communicating hydrocephalus with evidence of bilateral cerebellar hemisphere encephalomalacia [Figure 4]. This was taken care by medium pressure ventriculoperitoneal shunting, and postoperative period was uneventful as the patient did not develop any neurological deficits. Histopathological examination was consistent with the diagnosis of CPP [Figure 5].
