  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

While the calcification has been documented radiolo-gically in 4 - 25 percent of the cases with choroid plex-us papilloma, the ossification of choroid plexus papillo-ma has been reported only in 3 cases on literature. In this paper, we present a case of large ossified choroid plexus papilloma in the right lateral ventricle.

A 35-year-olcl man was admitted with left hemi-paresis and headache. Skull X-rays showed an abnor-mal calcified mass (25 mm × 23 mm × 14 mm) in the right temporal region.
