Abstract

LYNCH, José Carlos; MORAES, Gloria Patelo de  and  DUARTE, Francisco. Xanthogranuloma of choroid plexus: case report. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1988, vol.46, n.2, pp. 191-194. ISSN 0004-282X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X1988000200011.

We report an unusual case of a 30-year-old man who presented blindness and raised intracranial pressure secondary to a huge lateral ventricle xanthogranuloma. Computed tomographic scanning showed a highly calcified hyperdense mass that did not enhance after contrast administration. The mass was subtotally resected via transcallosal approach. The pathogenesis of the choroid plexus xanthogranuloma is discussed.
