Choroid Plexus Carcinoma- Unravelled - A Rare Case Report

Dr. Tibu John Joyse | Dr. Arun Kumar G | Dr. Kumar G V | Dr. Ramya [5]

Abstract: This article details a rare case of Choroid Plexus Carcinoma CPC, a malignant CNS WHO grade III epithelial neoplasm, diagnosed in a 5-year-old boy. CPCs, accounting for 34.4 of Choroid Plexus Tumors, predominantly affect children and are associated with poor prognosis, frequently arising in the lateral ventricles. Our case report underscores the clinical presentation, diagnostic challenges, and treatment modalities of CPC, emphasizing its rarity and the critical role of surgical intervention. Despite comprehensive treatment, including surgery and adjuvant therapies, the patient succumbed three months post-operation, highlighting the aggressive nature of CPC and the urgent need for improved diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. This case contributes to the limited literature on CPC, offering insights into its management and prognosis.
