Yang R, Yan H, Dewan MC, Tailor JK, Santisukwongchote S, Hawkins C, Ibrahim GM. Giant choroid plexus cysts with calvarial erosion: a case report and literature review.

Choroid plexus cysts rarely grow to be symptomatic. Few large choroid plexus cysts have been reported in the pediatric population. The authors report a 15-month-old boy with increased head circumference and a bony deformity in the left parietal region due to mass effect from a giant choroid plexus cyst. The child had a craniotomy for open resection of the cyst, and made an excellent recovery. The differential diagnosis for intraventricular cysts and the literature surrounding choroid plexus cysts are discussed.
