Choroid plexus tumors comprise less than 1% of all brain tumors. Almost 80% of cases occur in children making up 2% to 4% of pediatric brain tumors. The most common location is lateral ventricles as seen in this image. Given their location, the presenting symptoms and signs are related to hydrocephalus and increased intracranial pressure. Choroid plexus carcinomas are solid, infiltrative tumors frequently with foci of hemorrhage and necrosis.
