Choroid Plexus Neoplasms: 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. (From Devita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, p2072; J Neurosurg 1998 Mar;88(3):521-8)Choroid Plexus: A villous structure of tangled masses of BLOOD VESSELS contained within the third, lateral, and fourth ventricles of the BRAIN. It regulates part of the production and composition of CEREBROSPINAL FLUID.Papilloma, Choroid Plexus: A usually benign neoplasm that arises from the cuboidal epithelium of the choroid plexus and takes the form of an enlarged CHOROID PLEXUS, which may be associated with oversecretion of CSF. The tumor usually presents in the first decade of life with signs of increased intracranial pressure including HEADACHES; ATAXIA; DIPLOPIA; and alterations of mental status. In children it is most common in the lateral ventricles and in adults it tends to arise in the fourth ventricle. Malignant transformation to choroid plexus carcinomas may rarely occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p667; DeVita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, p2072)Choroid: The thin, highly vascular membrane covering most of the posterior of the eye between the RETINA and SCLERA.Brachial Plexus: The large network of nerve fibers which distributes the innervation of the upper extremity. The brachial plexus extends from the neck into the axilla. In humans, the nerves of the plexus usually originate from the lower cervical and the first thoracic spinal cord segments (C5-C8 and T1), but variations are not uncommon.Cerebral Ventricle Neoplasms: Neoplasms located in the brain ventricles, including the two lateral, the third, and the fourth ventricle. Ventricular tumors may be primary (e.g., CHOROID PLEXUS NEOPLASMS and GLIOMA, SUBEPENDYMAL), metastasize from distant organs, or occur as extensions of locally invasive tumors from adjacent brain structures.Cerebrospinal Fluid: A watery fluid that is continuously produced in the CHOROID PLEXUS and circulates around the surface of the BRAIN; SPINAL CORD; and in the CEREBRAL VENTRICLES.Myenteric Plexus: One of two ganglionated neural networks which together form the ENTERIC NERVOUS SYSTEM. The myenteric (Auerbach's) plexus is located between the longitudinal and circular muscle layers of the gut. Its neurons project to the circular muscle, to other myenteric ganglia, to submucosal ganglia, or directly to the epithelium, and play an important role in regulating and patterning gut motility. (From FASEB J 1989;3:127-38)Ependyma: A thin membrane that lines the CEREBRAL VENTRICLES and the central canal of the SPINAL CORD.Submucous Plexus: One of two ganglionated neural networks which together form the enteric nervous system. The submucous (Meissner's) plexus is in the connective tissue of the submucosa. Its neurons innervate the epithelium, blood vessels, endocrine cells, other submucosal ganglia, and myenteric ganglia, and play an important role in regulating ion and water transport. (From FASEB J 1989;3:127-38)Meninges: The three membranes that cover the BRAIN and the SPINAL CORD. They are the dura mater, the arachnoid, and the pia mater.Choroid Neoplasms: Tumors of the choroid; most common intraocular tumors are malignant melanomas of the choroid. These usually occur after puberty and increase in incidence with advancing age. Most malignant melanomas of the uveal tract develop from benign melanomas (nevi).Blood-Brain Barrier: Specialized non-fenestrated tightly-joined ENDOTHELIAL CELLS with TIGHT JUNCTIONS that form a transport barrier for certain substances between the cerebral capillaries and the BRAIN tissue.Celiac Plexus: A complex network of nerve fibers including sympathetic and parasympathetic efferents and visceral afferents. The celiac plexus is the largest of the autonomic plexuses and is located in the abdomen surrounding the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries.Lumbosacral Plexus: The lumbar and sacral plexuses taken together. The fibers of the lumbosacral plexus originate in the lumbar and upper sacral spinal cord (L1 to S3) and innervate the lower extremities.Cervical Plexus: A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four CERVICAL SPINAL CORD segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head. It also distributes motor fibers to muscles of the cervical SPINAL COLUMN, infrahyoid muscles, and the DIAPHRAGM.Cysts: Any fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM. Cysts can be of normal, abnormal, non-neoplastic, or neoplastic tissues.

Imaging features of intraventricular melanoma. (1/71)

We present the MR imaging findings in a patient with symptoms of increased intracranial pressure and a mass in the left lateral ventricle. The mass showed increased signal intensity on T1-weighted images and low signal intensity on T2-weighted images. The histologic diagnosis was that of melanoma, and detailed physical and funduscopic examinations disclosed no evidence of a primary lesion. We believe that the mass was a primary intraventricular melanoma, possibly arising from the choroid plexus, and we discuss the mechanisms that may be responsible for its occurrence in this location.  (+info)

Choroid plexus papilloma of cerebellopontine angle with extension to foramen magnum. (2/71)

A case of choroid plexus papilloma resembling meningioma of cerebellopontine (CP) angle with its extension to foramen magnum is presented. Occurrence of this tumour in CP angle is very rare. Its extension towards foramen magnum is further rare. It was a real diagnostic enigma preoperatively as the tumour was resembling meningioma upto some extent on radiological study. Retromastoid craniectomy with microsurgical excision of tumour and its extension was achieved in toto. Tumour was attached to few rootlets of lower cranial nerves which were preserved. Attachment of the tumour with lower cranial nerves again caused diagnostic confusion with neurofibroma intraoperatively.  (+info)

Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte epitope immunodominance in the control of choroid plexus tumors in simian virus 40 large T antigen transgenic mice. (3/71)

The simian virus 40 (SV40) large tumor antigen (Tag) is a virus-encoded oncoprotein which is the target of a strong cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) response. Three immunodominant H-2(b)-restricted epitopes, designated epitopes I, II/III, and IV, have been defined. We investigated whether induction of CTLs directed against these Tag epitopes might control Tag-induced tumors in SV11(+) (H-2(b)) mice. SV11(+) mice develop spontaneous tumors of the choroid plexus due to expression of SV40 Tag as a transgene. We demonstrate that SV11(+) mice are functionally tolerant to the immunodominant Tag CTL epitopes. CTLs specific for the H-2Kb-restricted Tag epitope IV were induced in SV11(+) mice following adoptive transfer with unprimed C57BL/6 spleen cells and immunization with recombinant vaccinia viruses expressing either full-length Tag or the H-2Kb-restricted epitope IV as a minigene. In addition, irradiation of SV11(+) mice prior to adoptive transfer with unprimed C57BL/6 spleen cells led to the priming of epitope IV-specific CTLs by the endogenous Tag. Induction of epitope IV-specific CTLs in SV11(+) mice by either approach correlated with increased life span and control of the choroid plexus tumor progression, indicating that CTLs specific for the immunodominant Tag epitope IV control the progressive growth of spontaneous tumors induced by this DNA virus oncogene in transgenic mice.  (+info)

Cytokeratin 7 and 20 expression in choroid plexus tumors: utility in differentiating these neoplasms from metastatic carcinomas. (4/71)

Tumors derived from choroid plexus epithelium are uncommon and may exhibit a wide variety of histologic patterns. They often are difficult to distinguish from metastatic carcinomas. Previous studies that addressed this issue yielded conflicting results. Recent reports have demonstrated that evaluation of coordinate expression of cytokeratin (CK) 7 and CK20 aids in distinguishing primary from metastatic lesions in a number of anatomic sites and that tumors that commonly are metastatic to the brain retain their CK7/CK20 immunophenotype in this location. We examined 35 choroid plexus tumors with a panel of antibodies to determine their CK7/CK20 immunophenotype. Tumors from 35 patients (7 male, 28 female; mean age, 25 years), including 31 choroid plexus papillomas and 4 atypical papillomas, were evaluated. All tumors were intraventricular or within the cerebellopontine angle and composed predominantly of orderly columnar epithelial cells resting on distinct fibrovascular cores. Atypical papillomas contained combinations of focal loss of architectural pattern, increased mitotic activity, necrosis, and brain parenchymal invasion. No lesion was unequivocally malignant. Twenty-six tumors (74%), including all atypical papillomas, were CK7 positive and CK20 negative. Two tumors stained with both markers, one stained with CK20 only, and six stained with neither marker. Other findings included expression of glial fibrillary acidic protein in 24 tumors, S-100 protein in 19 tumors, transthyretin in 31 tumors, Ber EP4 in 1 tumor, CAM5.2 in 33 tumors, epithelial membrane antigen in 4 tumors, and pancytokeratin in 27 tumors. Our results indicate that the majority of choroid plexus tumors have a CK7-positive/CK20-negative immunophenotype. This finding may be useful in differentiating these lesions from metastatic carcinomas that have differing CK7/CK20 profiles.  (+info)

IL-12 treatment of endogenously arising murine brain tumors. (5/71)

A number of recent studies have indicated that T cells can be stimulated to attack transplanted brain tumors in rodent models. As IL-12 has been shown to activate cytotoxic T cell responses, we tested the idea that it might stimulate a T cell response against endogenous brain tumors that arise in SV40 large T Ag transgenic mice (SV11). SV11 mice develop tumors of the choroid plexus, a specialization of the ependymal lining of the brain ventricles. They are a particularly relevant model of human disease, because they are immunocompetent but immunologically tolerant of the tumors. SV11 mice were treated with recombinant murine IL-12 for 10 days. Tumors grew more slowly than in control treated mice, and in some cases were reduced in size, as assessed by magnetic resonance imaging before and after treatment. At the end of treatment, tumors, but not brain parenchyma, exhibited extensive infiltration of activated CD8(+) and CD4(+) T cells. Tumors also showed a reduction in vascular density. Mice treated with IL-12 lived significantly longer than control mice. Tumors that progressed were nearly devoid of T cells, indicating that the T cell response was not sustained. In addition, some mice that had a substantial tumor burden at the beginning of treatment displayed evidence of immunosuppression, which might be related to TGF-ss2 detected in tumors. We conclude that IL-12 treatment can initiate an anti-tumor response even against endogenously arising brain tumors, but factors that will allow a sustained and more effective anti-tumor response need to be determined.  (+info)

Prostaglandin D synthase (beta-trace) in meningeal hemangiopericytoma. (6/71)

The level of prostaglandin D synthase (PGDS), a major protein constituent of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), is altered in various brain diseases, including meningitis. However, its role in the brain remains unclear. PGDS is mainly synthesized in the arachnoid cells, the choroid plexus and oligodendrocytes in the central nervous system. Among brain tumors, meningiomas showed intense immunoreactivity to PGDS in the perinuclear region. Thus, PGDS has been considered a specific cell marker of meningioma. In this study, we examined 25 meningeal hemangiopericytomas (HPCs) and found that 16 of the tumors (64%) showed immunoreactivity for PGDS in the perinuclear region. For comparison, 15 meningiomas, 14 soft-tissue HPCs, 1 mesenchymal chondrosarcoma, 3 choroid plexus papillomas, and 7 oligodendrogliomas were also examined. Meningiomas showed positive immunoreactivity for PGDS in 13 cases (80%). Except for one case located at the sacrum, none of the other soft-tissue HPCs showed immunostaining for PGDS. Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma arises in the bones of the skull, and its histological pattern resembles that of HPC; however, it showed no immunoreactivity for PGDS. Neither choroid plexus papillomas nor oligodendrogliomas were immunopositive for PGDS. These findings suggest that meningeal HPCs may have a unique molecular phenotype that is distinct from that of the soft-tissue HPCs. The origin of meningeal HPCs may be more closely related to the arachnoid cells.  (+info)

Tissue-specific expression of SV40 in tumors associated with the Li-Fraumeni syndrome. (7/71)

Inactivation of wild-type p53 tumor suppressor function is the primary mechanism of tumor initiation in Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS) individuals with germline p53 mutations. Tumors derived from LFS patients frequently retain the normal p53 allele, suggesting that alternative mechanisms in addition to gene deletion must be involved in inactivating wild-type p53 protein. DNA tumor viruses, such as SV40, target p53 for inactivation through the action of viral oncoproteins. We studied the probands from two unrelated LFS families, each of whom presented with multiple malignant neoplasms. Patient 1 developed an embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) and a choroid plexus carcinoma (CPC), while patient 2 developed a CPC and subsequently presented with both an osteosarcoma (OS) and renal cell carcinoma (RCC). We utilized DNA sequence analysis and immunohistochemistry to determine p53 gene status in the germline and tumors, as well as evidence for SV40 T-antigen oncoprotein expression. Each patient harbored a heterozygous germline p53 mutation at codons 175 and 273, respectively. In patient 1, the normal p53 gene was lost while the mutant p53 allele was reduced to homozygosity in the RMS. Both normal and mutant genes were maintained in the CPC. In patient 2, normal and mutant p53 alleles were retained in both the CPC and RCC. Both specific PCR and immunostaining detected SV40 T-antigen in both CPCs and the RCC. In addition to chromosomal alterations, epigenetic mechanisms may disrupt p53 function during tumorigenesis. In two LFS patients, we found SV40 DNA sequences and viral T-antigen expression that could account for inactivation of the normal p53 protein. Inactivation of p53 or other tumor suppressors by viral proteins may contribute to tumor formation in specific tissues of genetically susceptible individuals.  (+info)

Cytogenetics and molecular genetics of childhood brain tumors. (8/71)

Considerable progress has been made toward improving survival for children with brain tumors, and yet there is still relatively little known regarding the molecular genetic events that contribute to tumor initiation or progression. Nonrandom patterns of chromosomal deletions in several types of childhood brain tumors suggest that the loss or inactivation of tumor suppressor genes are critical events in tumorigenesis. Deletions of chromosomal regions 10q, 11 and 17p, and example, are frequent events in medulloblastoma, whereas loss of a region within 22q11.2, which contains the INI1 gene, is involved in the development of atypical teratoid and rhabdoid tumors. A review of the cytogenetic and molecular genetic changes identified to date in childhood brain tumors will be presented.  (+info)

... or choroid plexus tumor is a type of cancerous tumor that occurs in the brains choroid plexus tissue and most often occurs in children. The choroid plexus tissue lines the ventricles of the brain and produces cerebrospinal fluid or CSF. CSF circulates around the brain and spinal cord providing cushioning and protection. Because these tumors arise from the tissue involved in the making of CSF, the tumors can spread widely through this fluid. Symptoms of choroid plexus carcinoma are similar to those of other brain tumors including frequent headaches, unusually large head due to excess fluid on the brain, or large "soft spots" found on the babys head. Other symptoms may include a decrease or loss of appetite and vomiting. The cause behind these tumors is largely unknown.. Treatment is usually surgical removal of the tumor and if removed completely, may be the only treatment necessary. If the recurs, a second surgery along with radiation and/or chemotherapy may be needed. ...
Postoperative imaging important: The first postoperative imaging should be done within 72 hours to make sure there is no residual tumor or to assess its size if tumor remains. Follow-up imaging will then depend on the pathology of the tumor and on the adjuvant therapies (typically every 3 months for choroid plexus carcinomas; and every 6 months, then every year for choroid plexus papillomas ...

Choroid plexus carcinoma mouse model. TgT121;p53+/− mice develop focally aggressive angiogenic CPC that is histologically detectable by 8 weeks and terminal by 12 weeks of age ( 7, 22). Often, a single animal develops multiple focal tumors. Tumors are initiated by choroid plexus-specific expression of T121, an NH2-terminal fragment of SV40 large T antigen that binds and inactivates the tumor suppressor pRb and related proteins p107 and p130 ( 22). T121 induces cell proliferation and p53-dependent apoptosis throughout the choroid plexus epithelium such that heterozygosity for a p53 null allele facilitates multifocal tumor progression to CPC with complete p53 loss. Histologic analyses show that the timing and penetrance of tumor development is highly reproducible ( 6). CPC tumors are heavily vascular lesions and thus provide an ideal tumor type in which to study the effect of antiangiogenic agents in experimental animals.. A total of 20 mice were studied, including 11 TgT121;p53+/− mice and ...

Several primary pathologic entities in diverse anatomic locations have the potential to simulate metastatic neoplasms histologically. Their misinterpretation as such may result in needless and extensive clinical evaluations that are intended to detect a presumed malignancy at another site. More importantly, mistakes of this type can deprive patients of surgical excisions that could be curative. This presentation considers a review of selected primary lesions that can simulate metastases. They include hemangioblastoma, glioblastoma and meningioma with epithelial metaplasia, choroid plexus carcinomas, primary neuroendocrine carcinomas in unusual locations, special forms of sinonasal and salivary glandular adenocarcinoma, clear-cell thyroid carcinomas, unusual microscopic subtypes of pulmonary adenocarcinoma, epithelioid myomelanocytomas ("sugar tumors"), mesotheliomas, primary thymic carcinomas, endodermal choristomas of the interatrial myocardium, peripheral cholangiocarcinoma, adrenocortical ...
This is the last in my tumor biomarker series -- at least until future significant biomarkers are established. I conclude this series with a short description of INI1, a marker for atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT). A clinically aggressive embryonal tumor of infancy, AT/RT is characterized by mutations in SMARCB1/INI1 (HSNF5). Immunohistochemical evaluation of AT/RT for the INI1 protein using the BAF47 antibody shows a loss of labelling in tumor cell nuclei, with retention of staining in internal positive control cells such as endothelial cells. Since AT/RT has morphologic overlap with medulloblastoma, CNS PNET, choroid plexus carcinoma, GBM, and other malignant tumors of childhood, INI1 immunohistochemistry is extremely useful in arriving at a diagnosis of AT/RT. A diagnosis of AT/RT carries implications for genetic counseling as this tumor -- in about a one-third of cases -- is a component of the rhabdoid tumor predisposition syndrome (RTPS) wherein there is a germline mutation of ...

Intraventricular tumors can be categorized into those that originate from structures within the ventricular system or those that arise from the ventricular wall and subsequently grow into the ventricle (2, 11). Choroid plexus tumors and meningiomas are typical examples of tumors arising from an intraventricular structure, the choroid plexus (12, 13). By contrast, intraventricular gliomas likely originate from a paraventricular location before growth into the ventricle. Regardless of origin, a tumor is considered intraventricular if it is located primarily within the ventricular system and causes a local expansion of the ventricle with growth. Most lateral ventricular tumors enlarge slowly and typically do not cause symptoms until reaching a size large enough to cause obstructive hydrocephalus or compression of surrounding eloquent structures (4, 5). The most common symptom is headache, followed by visual deficits and signs of elevated intracranial pressure, including papilledema (2, 4, 11, 12, ...
BACKGROUND. Meningiomas are the most common brain tumor in both cats and dogs. Other brain tumors include lymphoma, ependymoma, choroid plexus tumors, and glial tumors such as astrocytoma. Brain tumors rarely metastasize and the major challenge in treating brain tumors is preserving neurologic function and preventing local tumor recurrence.. DIAGNOSIS. Advanced imaging is required for the diagnosis and localization of brain tumors. MRI is preferred but CT scans can also be useful.. TREATMENT. Surgical excision alone is recommended for the treatment of meningioma in cats, while a combination of surgical excision and radiation therapy is preferred for dogs with meningioma. Anesthetic management is very important for the success of brain tumor surgery and postoperative hospitalization can be prolonged during recovery.. The combination of surgery and radiation therapy is recommended for other types of brain tumors. Chemotherapy may provide some palliative benefit for cats with lymphoma and dogs with ...
RADIOLOGY: HEAD: Case# 33610: CHOROID PLEXUS PAPILLOMA (CPP). This 9 month old child presented with a history of lethargy. T1 weighted axial MRI reveals an intermediate signal mass in the lateral ventricle. T1 weighted axial MRI after gadolinium shows intense, homogeneous enhancement of the mass in the lateral ventricle. T2 weighted axial MRI shows intense surrounding vasogenic edema. Choroid plexus papilloma (CPP) are the most common tumor arising in the trigone of the lateral ventricle in children. They represent 2-5% of all primary brain tumors in children, with almost 90% occurring in children less than five years old. In children, they usually arise in the trigone of the lateral ventricle. In adults they commonly arise in the fourth ventricle. Less than 10% occur in the third ventricle or elsewhere. Patients usually present with hydrocephalus. CPPs typically enhance dramatically following contrast administration on CT or MRI. Parenchymal invasion with edema may occur. Imaging findings are not

Choroid plexus blood flow was measured in adult female sheep using the radioactive microsphere technique. The response of choroid plexus, renal and cortical blood flow to the infusion of dopamine (11 sheep), haloperidol (7 sheep) and propranolol (6 sheep) were compared. Choroid plexus and renal blood flow significantly increased after dopamine infusion (55% and 49% respectively). Choroid plexus and renal blood flow decreased significantly following haloperidol infusion (-24% and 29% respectively). Cortical blood flow did not significantly change. Propranolol infusion did not significantly change blood flow in these regions. These observations suggest that dopaminergic mechanisms play a role in the regulation of choroid plexus as well as renal blood flow.

Background The choroid plexuses will be the interface between the blood and the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) contained within the ventricular spaces of the central nervous system. are indicated early during development. Overall perinatal manifestation levels of genes involved in drug rate of metabolism and antioxidant mechanisms are similar to, or higher than levels measured in adults. A similar developmental pattern was observed for multispecific efflux transporter genes of the and superfamilies. Manifestation of all these genes was Trifolirhizin more variable in choroid plexus from fifteen-day-old embryos. A large panel of transcription factors involved in the xenobiotic- or cell stress-mediated induction of detoxifying enzymes and transporters is also expressed throughout development. Conclusions This transcriptomic analysis suggests relatively wellCestablished neuroprotective mechanisms in the blood-CSF barrier throughout development of the rat. The manifestation of many transcription factors ...

Choroid plexus cysts (CPCs) are cysts that occur within choroid plexus of the brain. The brain contains pockets or spaces called ventricles with a spongy layer of cells and blood vessels called the choroid plexus. This is in the middle of the fetal brain. The choroid plexus has the important function of producing cerebrospinal fluid. The fluid produced by the cells of the choroid plexus fills the ventricles and then flows around the brain and the spinal cord to provide a cushion of fluid around these structures. CPCs can form within this structure and come from fluid trapped within this spongy layer of cells, much like a soap bubble or a blister. CPCs are often called "soft signs" or fetal ultrasound "markers" because some studies have found a weak association between CPCs and fetal chromosome abnormalities. It is believed that many adults have one or more tiny CPCs. The fetal brain may create these cysts as a normal part of development. They are temporary and usually are gone by the 32nd week ...
A 23-year-old primigravida presented to her local hospital with reduced fetal movements at 31 week of gestation. An admission cardiotocograph showed sinusoidal pattern. An ultrasound (US) revealed a brain abnormality with a mass. An US at the regional Fetal Medicine unit confirmed a hydropic fetus, with an intracranial mass measuring 6.6×7 cm in the right lateral ventricle (possibly haemorrhagic), ventriculomegaly and loss of anatomical landmarks in the brain. Antenatal MRI scan confirmed a 7 cm mass with appearances suggestive of an intraventricular tumour, possibly choroid plexus papilloma or carcinoma. Following counselling by the multidisciplinary fetal medicine team the couple opted for termination of pregnancy and a vaginal delivery, the first such report in the literature. Cephalocentesis was performed following fetocide to reduce the hydrocephalus. Postmortem, histology, cytology and immunohistochemistry confirmed a Glioblastoma (WHO Grade IV).. The incidence of brain tumours in first ...
Glioma: Benign and malignant central nervous system neoplasms derived from glial cells (i.e., astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, and ependymocytes). Astrocytes may give rise to astrocytomas (ASTROCYTOMA) or glioblastoma multiforme (see GLIOBLASTOMA). Oligodendrocytes give rise to oligodendrogliomas (OLIGODENDROGLIOMA) and ependymocytes may undergo transformation to become EPENDYMOMA; CHOROID PLEXUS NEOPLASMS; or colloid cysts of the third ventricle. (From Escourolle et al., Manual of Basic Neuropathology, 2nd ed, p21)
Choroid plexus cyst. Ultrasound scan of a foetus brain with a choroid plexus cyst (CPC). The choroid plexus is a layer of cells and blood vessels at the centre of the foetal brain. It produces a fluid, called cerebrospinal fluid, that flows around the brain and provides a protective cushion for it against impacts. CPCs in foetuses are temporary bubbles of trapped fluid that are usually gone by the 32nd week of pregnancy. They are classed as markers for underlying chromosome abnormalities in the foetus. Ultrasound scanning is a diagnostic technique that sends high-frequency sound waves into the body via a transducer. The returning echoes are recorded and used to build an image of an internal structure. - Stock Image M130/1007
Glioblastoma represents 15%-20% of all intracranial tumors and approximately 50 % of gliomas in adults. Although capable of arising anywhere in the central nervous system, these tumors mainly present as a frontotemporal lesion (63%) of the cerebral cortex. But, intraventricular glioblastoma is rare and only few cases have been reported in the literature. We report a case of 40-year-old woman who had a headache, vomiting and visual disturbances that persisted for four weeks. Magnetic resonance imaging showed an intraventricular lesion with inhomogeneous enhancement and infiltrative borders. These characteristics are consistent with other differential diagnoses: carcinomas, ependymomas and choroid plexus papillomas. The patient underwent a stereotactic biopsy allowed the final diagnosis of intra ventricular glioblastoma.

Neoplasia. Both primary and secondary brain tumors occurring in the region of the central vestibular structures can cause central vestibular dysfunction. The most common primary brain tumors that occur in this region include meningiomas, gliomas, and choroid plexus tumors. Other primary brain tumors include medulloblastoma, ependymoma, epidermoid or dermoid cysts, and other rare tumors. Secondary brain tumors (e.g., multilobular tumor of bone, osteostarcoma, metastatic hemangiosarcoma) can also occur in this area. Treatment options include surgery if accessible, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and palliative control of cerebral edema with corticosteroids. See the neoplasia disease pages under the intracranial menu above for additional information.. Encephalitis. Central vestibular dysfunction is relatively common in dogs with immune-mediated (presumably non-infectoius) inflammatory brain diseases.

One recent report described a series of papillary tumors that were initially diagnosed as choroid plexus papilloma, papillary ependymoma, or papillary pineal parenchymal tumor and were subsequently reclassified as a primary PTPR after re-examination and immunohistochemical staining.4 Therefore, it is likely that other previous reports of unusual posterior third ventricle choroid plexus papillomas, papillary pineal parenchymal tumors, or papillary ependymomas of the pineal region may actually represent early examples of a PTPR.. The proper differentiation of papillary tumors has management implications because treatment response of PTPRs is less well documented than other tumors in the pineal region. An understanding of the biologic behavior of a PTPR is evolving as more cases are documented, and local recurrence of a PTPR has been described.4,7,10. With regard to a possible explanation of imaging characteristics of a PTPR, electron microscopic findings support a secretory function of the PTPR ...

Fenestrated blood vessels in the rat choroid plexus are permeable to dye-labelled proteins, HRP and ferritin. Most leakage appears to be via fenestrae but some additional escape of marker appears to take place through transient and reversible openings in the junctions between endothelial cells. After they have escaped into the choroidal stroma markers are prevented from entering the CSF by tight junctions between the epithelial cells which cover the choroid plexus, but how they are removed from the extravascular space is not known. Electron microscope study of rats who have been given multiple intravenous injections of ferritin shows that extravascular ferritin is take up both by connective tissue cells in the choroidal stroma and by choroidal epithelial cells. The findings suggest that the ingested protein is subsequently broken down within lysosomal vacuoles in the cytoplasm of these cells. Such intracellular digestion may be the major means of controlling the protein content of the extravascular

BACKGROUND. Spinal cord tumors are rare in cats and dogs. The most common spinal cord tumors are lymphoma in cats and meningioma in dogs. The majority of cats with spinal lymphoma are FeLV positive. Other spinal cord tumors include intradural-extramedullary spinal cord tumor of young dogs (also known as nephroblastoma and ependymoma) and glial tumors such as astrocytomas, oligodendroglioma, and choroid plexus tumors. The spinal cord can also be affected by extension of peripheral nerve tumors into the spinal canal. Spinal cord tumors cause neurologic dysfunction with clinical signs being dependent on their location along the spinal cord. Metastasis is rare.. DIAGNOSIS. Survey and contrast radiographs (myelogram) are important to rule out other causes of neurologic disease, such as intervertebral disk disease and vertebral tumors. The contrast pattern on the myelogram is used to classify spinal cord tumors as extradural, intradural-extramedullary, or intramedullary. Meningiomas and peripheral ...

Tyr-Pro-N-MePhe-D-Pro-NH2 (1.86 nmol), dynorphin A1-17 (4.65 nmol) and DPDPE (4.64 nmol), which are selective for mu-, kappa- and delta- opioid receptors, respectively, were injected into the right lateral ventricle of unrestrained male Sprague-Dawley rats. At ambient temperatures of 30 degrees C and 5 degrees C, brain surface temperature (Tb), oxygen consumption (VO2) and heat exchange (Q) were measured for 3 hr after injection in a gradient-layer calorimeter. Tyr-Pro-N-MePhe-D-Pro-NH2 at 30 degrees C caused significant hyperthermia (1.39 +/- 0.48 degree C) with onset occurring 15 to 30 min after injection and lasting 60 min after injection. Increased Tb was due to a significant decrease in Q (-1.31 +/- 0.31 cal/g/hr) and to a 60 to 75% increase in VO2 compared with saline controls. Thirty-min pretreatment with cyclic D-Phe-Cys-Tyr-D-Trp-Arg-Thr-Pen-Thr-NH2 (0.74 nmol), a mu-selective antagonist, blocked the changes. At 30 degrees C, neither dynorphin A1-17 nor DPDPE significantly altered Tb, Q ...

Clearly, we need to sleep. But why? In a study in the October 18, 2013, issue of Science (http://dx.doi.org/10.1126/science.1241224), researchers report on a technique they developed for measuring the interstitial space in the brains of living mice. That space is bathed by cerebrospinal fluid that is produced by the choroid plexus and pumped back into the blood in the meninges. The researchers found that, during sleep and anesthesia, the interstitial space increased by 60%. The functional result of this expansion is that many metabolites of neurons and glial cells that spill into the interstitial space are cleared from the space much more rapidly, enter the blood, and are detoxified by the liver. These molecules include β‐amyloid and tau, which build up in the brains of patients with Alzheimer disease. When sleeping animals are aroused, the clearance of toxic metabolites slows markedly ...
I had my 21 week appointment today. Everything is still going great. I did have a little scare while I was at Disney World. My doctor called me personally (never a good sign) to tell me they found something on my ultrasound. They found a Choroid plexus cyst on the babys brain. Apparently it can be a marker for some chromosone issues. My doctor told me that everything else looked PERFECT on the ultrasound and she doubts anything is actually wrong, but they want to be sure. So the day after I got back I went to see a specialtist and had a level 2 ultrasound. The cyst must have shrunk (which I was told it might or even disappear) because it wasnt something the specialist gave any real concern. I was told again that they are definitly sure it is a girl. After I was told everything is fine (I was given a less than .5-1% chance that it could lead to something) I was able to enjoy the new ultrasound. The baby was yawning which I had never seen that before. She was also grabbing her toes with her ...

ABSTRACT. High blood pressure produces ventricular dilation, variations in circumventricular organs and changes in the cerebrospinal fluid compositions. On the other hand, chronic hypertension in spontaneously hypertensive rats can cause changes in the integrity of the brain barriers: blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier and blood brain barrier. The permeability of the brain barriers can be studied by using transthyretin and S-100β. In the present work we study the integrity of the brain barrier and the choroid plexus function variations in arterial hypertension. Control rats and spontaneously hypertensive rats were used and the choroid plexus were processed by immunohistochemistry with anti-transthyretin and anti-vasopressin. Western blot was also performed in cerebrospinal fluid, serum and choroid plexus using anti-S-100β, antitransthyretin. The accumulation of transthyretin immunoreactive was bigger in spontaneously hypertensive rats with respect to the control. Vasopressin was also higher in ...
Intracranial xanthogranulomas are somewhat rare, benign lesions and occur most commonly as choroid plexus xanthogranulomas. The exact etiology is uncertain.(1). The first reported case of xanthogranuloma of the choroid plexus was reported by Blummer in 1900, under the diagnosis of Cholestomatous endothelioma (2). Most xanthogranulomas of the choroid plexus arise in the lateral ventricular choroid plexus. (3) They are usually asymptomatic incidental findings, found in 2-7% of postmortem examinations (2). The xanthomatous reaction usually involves the stroma of the choroid plexus, and to a lesser extent, the epithelium (4). Like other xanthogranulomas, these choroid plexus xanthogranulomas are composed of xanthoma cells, cholesterol clefts, giant cells, hemosiderin, fibrosis, and occasional calcium deposits (3,4 ...
In this study, researches from Biozentrum, University of Basel found that the choroid plexus produces signals that regulate adult neural stem cells. Within the brain, these neural cells give rise to neurons throughout life. They also provide key signals that regulate cell self-renewal and differentiation. Within the findings, researchers identified that the choroid plexus secretes a wide variety of signaling factors in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which are important for stem cell regulation. Furthermore, they found that although stem cells are present throughout aging, the signals they receive from the choroid plexus changes making them divide less. "One reason is that signals in the old choroid plexus are different. As a consequence, stem cells receive different messages and are less capable to form new neurons during aging. In other words, compromising the fitness of stem cells in this brain region," explains Violeta Sliva Vargas, the first author of the study. To read more, click ...
To determine whether increased expression of RALDH2 in recovering choroids resulted in increased retinoic acid synthesis, atRA was measured in organ cultures of choroids during the period in which RALDH2 expression was increasing, using an ultrasensitive procedure making use of LC/MS/MS quantification (Fig. 8A). Choroids (8-mm punches) isolated from control and treated eyes after recovery periods ranging from 3 hours to 15 days were incubated in N2 culture medium (80 μL) for 3 hours, and total atRA was measured in medium together with the choroid punch. Control samples contained on average 0.33 to 0.60 pmol atRA, corresponding to concentrations of approximately 4 × 10−9 to 7 × 10−9 M in organ cultures. After 6 hours of recovery, atRA concentrations began to increase in treated eyes. The large SE is due to one choroid from a recovering eye that synthesized nearly fourfold more RA than the other samples. RA concentration was significantly higher in cultures of choroids from 24-hour ...

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Researchers have discovered that an organ in the brain called the choroid plexus apparently plays a critical role in preventing the accumulation of a protein associated with Alzheimers disease.. The researchers found that the choroid plexus acts as a sort of fishnet that captures the protein, called beta-amyloid, and prevents it from building up in the cerebrospinal fluid, which surrounds and bathes the brain and spinal cord. Moreover, tissue in the organ is able to soak up large amounts of the protein and may contain enzymes capable of digesting beta-amyloid, said Wei Zheng (pronounced Way Zsheng), an associate professor in the School of Health Sciences at Purdue University.. The findings represent the first time that researchers have identified the potential existence of a natural mechanism in the brain for removing beta-amyloid.. This newly uncovered pathway may help explain how normal brains balance this protein and how an imbalance caused by aging, genetic or ...

The intracranial compartment is a common site of metastatic cancer. Of the patients projected to die of systemic cancer approximately 25 percent, or over are expected to have intracranial metastasis. The importance of intracranial metastasis is, however, not primarily due to its frequent occurrence but to the fact that the large majority of the new foci become symptomatic. Compared with other organs, such as the lung and liver, in which the incidence of metastasis is even higher, the manifestations of metastases affecting the brain are usually more overt and disabling and if untreated, tend to be rapidly lethal. For these reasons brain metastasis demands prompt diagnostic and therapeutic attention.. A sense of frustration is justifiably inherent in the treatment of patients suffering from disseminated cancer. With few exceptions, even the eradication of a presumed solitary metastasis is followed sooner or later by the discovery of metastases elsewhere or at the primary site. Nevertheless, ...

This week I am 27 weeks! I had to go in this week for a ultrasound because Wells had a cyst in her brain, which is gone now!! It is called a Choroid Plexus Cyst. We found out she had it during our first ultrasound at 19 weeks. I have been stressed, to say the least, for 8 weeks!! The ultrasound tech said not to worry that 1 out of 3 babies have them and they usually go away on there on. Well of course I could not stop worrying about it! I started looking/researching online and found what it could be if it didnt go away and so on. I know that is the worst thing to do but I couldnt help myself. I have been in a major funk and just so down and out. We didnt really talk about it alot because we wanted to wait and see what happened when we went back. We are so blessed that it is gone and she is perfectly healthy!! She weighs 2 lbs and 5 ozs! I feel like a different person and I just pray that everything goes good and we have a normal delivery.

The involvement of circulating insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) in the beneficial effects of physical exercise on the brain makes this abundant serum growth factor a physiologically relevant neuroprotective signal. However, the mechanisms underlying neuroprotection by serum IGF-I remain primarily unknown. Among many other neuroprotective actions, IGF-I enhances clearance of brain amyloid β (Aβ) by modulating transport/production of Aβ carriers at the blood-brain interface in the choroid plexus. We found that physical exercise increases the levels of the choroid plexus endocytic receptor megalin/low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein-2 (LRP2), a multicargo transporter known to participate in brain uptake of Aβ carriers. By manipulating choroid plexus megalin levels through viral-directed overexpression and RNA interference, we observed that megalin mediates IGF-I-induced clearance of Aβ and is involved in IGF-I transport into the brain. Through this dual role, megalin ...
We present a rare and interesting case of a cerebellopontine angle cyst containing ectopic choroid plexus tissue in a 26 year-old female. Surgical resection was performed, and histological examination confirmed the presence of choroid plexus in the cyst wall. This is the first reported case of ectopic choroid plexus at the cerebellopontine angle in an adult. We present the case and review the literature.
Cancer of the nervous system is common in domestic canids, and includes primary neoplasia of the peripheral nervous system, primary neoplasia of the central nervous system and various metastatic cancers. Some of the most common of the central nervous system tumors are several types of primary (originating from brain tissue) canine brain tumors. Examples of these include: meningiomas, astrocytomas, glioblastomas, oligodendriomas, choroid plexus papillomas, and pituitary adenomas. Breeds predisposed to brain tumors include: Boxer Dog, Pug, English Bull Dog, Boston Terrier, and Golden Retrievers. Meningiomas (arising from the meninges, a neural crest-derived cell) are the most common brain tumor of dogs, accounting for 40% of all primary brain tumors. Golden Retrievers as well as other dolichocephalic (long-nosed) breeds are particularly susceptible. Astrocytomas are the most common neuroectodermal tumor of dogs. Glioblastomas are considered a subset of astrocytomas-a particularly damaging, ...
Researchers have discovered that the choroid plexus, a largely ignored structure in the brain that produces the cerebrospinal fluid, is an important regulator of adult neural stem cells. The study also shows that signals secreted by the choroid plexus dynamically change during aging which affects aged stem cell behavior. Stem cells are non-specialized cells found in different organs. They have the capacity to generate specialized cells in the body. In the adult brain, neural stem cells give rise to neurons throughout life. The stem cells reside in unique micro-environments, so-called niches which provide key signals that regulate stem cell self-renewal and differentiation. Stem cells in the adult brain contact the ventricles, cavities filled with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that bathes and protects the brain. The research team has now shown that the choroid plexus is a key component of the stem cell niche, whose properties change throughout life and affect stem cell behavior. The researchers ...
Recent genetic fate maps show that the mouse hRPe at ∼E11 is comprised of lineage-restricted compartments along the AP dimension (Awatramani et al., 2003) - a contrast to the AP cell dispersion characterizing floor plate (Fraser et al., 1990). Here, we re-examined our earlier finding of hRPe segmentation using a genetic fate mapping indicator allele with improved sensitivity due to encoding a nuclear-localized βgal (nβgal) as lineage tracer (Farago et al., 2006). We coupled this new Cre-responsive nβgal indicator allele with recombinase transgene Egr2::cre (Voiculescu et al., 2000) to map hRPe emerging from rhombomeres 3 and 5 (r3 and r5). As predicted (Awatramani et al., 2003), nβgal-positive (nβgal+) cells were found in stripes in the lateral hRPe at ∼E11.5, supporting the model that these cells develop in a segmental, lineage-restricted fashion (Fig. 2B, lat). Not predicted was our detection of a midline hRPe field harboring an admixture of cells derived from different rhombomeres - ...

The brain produces roughly 500 mL of cerebrospinal fluid per day,[2] at a rate of about 25 mL an hour.[1] This transcellular fluid is constantly reabsorbed, so that only 125-150 mL is present at any one time.[1]. Most (about two-thirds to 80%) of CSF is produced by the choroid plexus.[1][2] The choroid plexus is a network of blood vessels present within sections of the four ventricles of the brain. It is present throughout the ventricular system except for the cerebral aqueduct, frontal horn of the lateral ventricle, and occipital horn of the lateral ventricle.[15] CSF is also produced by the single layer of column-shaped ependymal cells which line the ventricles; by the lining surrounding the subarachnoid space; and a small amount directly from the tiny spaces surrounding blood vessels around the brain.[2]. CSF is produced by the choroid plexus in two steps. Firstly, a filtered form of plasma moves from fenestrated capillaries in the choroid plexus into an interstitial space,[1] with movement ...
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a genetic systemic disorder, which is associated with cyst formation in several organs, renal function decline and a higher prevalence of intracranial aneurysms.

Recent evidence suggests that the polycystin proteins, which are dysfunctional in ADPKD, are found in ciliated choroid plexus cells that are involved with regulation of cerebrospinal fluid homeostasis. We hypothesize therefore that choroid plexus cysts may be part of the ADPKD phenotype, which has not been described before. show less ...
