... 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. ...
Answer: Choroid plexus papilloma. Histology: This papillary neoplasm is composed of delicate fibrovascular stalks that are lined by a single layer of bland appearing cuboidal to columnar epithelium with round to oval, basally situated monomorphic nuclei. No mitotic figures are readily identified. These features are diagnostic of a choroid plexus papilloma. Discussion: Choroid plexus tumors make up less than 1% of all brain tumors, but they represent 2-4% of brain tumors in children, and 10-20% of brain tumors in the first year of life. In general, choroids plexus papillomas are five times more common than choroids plexus carcinomas. Approximately 80% of choroid plexus carcinomas arise in children representing 20-40% of pediatric choroid plexus tumors. The majority of choroids plexus tumors arise in the lateral ventricle (50%), followed by the fourth (40%) and third ventricles (5%).. Histologically, the differential diagnosis of choroids plexus papilloma includes villous hyperthrophy (diffuse ...

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.
Chronic systemic inflammation triggers alterations in the central nervous system that may relate to the underlying inflammatory component reported in neurodegenerative disorders such as multiple sclerosis and Alzheimers disease. However, it is far from being understood whether and how peripheral inflammation contributes to induce brain inflammatory response in such illnesses. As part of the barriers that separate the blood from the brain, the choroid plexus conveys inflammatory immune signals into the brain, largely through alterations in the composition of the cerebrospinal fluid. In the present study we investigated the mouse choroid plexus gene expression profile, using microarray analyses, in response to a repeated inflammatory stimulus induced by the intraperitoneal administration of lipopolysaccharide every two weeks for a period of three months; mice were sacrificed 3 and 15 days after the last lipopolysaccharide injection. The data show that the choroid plexus displays a sustained response to

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 ...
Genetic disruption of slc4a10, which encodes the sodium-dependent chloride/bicarbonate exchanger Ncbe, leads to a major decrease in Na+-dependent HCO3− import into choroid plexus epithelial cells in mice and to a marked reduction in brain intraventricular fluid volume. This suggests that Ncbe functionally is a key element in vectorial Na+ transport and thereby for cerebrospinal fluid secretion in the choroid plexus. However, slc4a10 disruption results in severe changes in expression of Na+,K+-ATPase complexes and other major transport proteins, indicating that profound cellular changes accompany the genetic manipulation. A tandem mass tag labeling strategy was chosen for quantitative mass spectrometry. Alterations in the broader patterns of protein expression in the choroid plexus in response to genetic disruption of Ncbe was validated by semi-quantitative immunoblotting, immunohistochemistry and morphometry. The abundance of 601 proteins were found significantly altered in the choroid plexus from
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
