Name Choroid Plexus Neoplasms
Synonyms Choroid Plexus Neoplasm | Choroid Plexus Neoplasms, Primary | Choroid Plexus Tumor | Choroid Plexus Tumors | Neoplasm, Choroid Plexus | Neoplasms, Choroid Plexus | Primary Choroid Plexus Neoplasms
Definition Benign or malignant tumors which arise from the choroid plexus of the ventricles of the brain. Papillomas (see PAPILLOMA, CHOROID PLEXUS) and carcinomas are the most common histologic subtypes, and tend to seed throughout the ventricular and subarachnoid spaces. Clinical features include headaches, ataxia and alterations of consciousness, primarily resulting from associated HYDROCEPHALUS.
