Özet

Background. Choroid plexus papillomas are rare, accounting for less than 1% of all intracranial tumours in adults. However, they are relatively more common in childhood and constitute 1.5 to 4% of intracranial tumours. They are most often located in the lateral ventricle, followed by the fourth and third ventricles and, rarely, in the cerebellopontine angle. Bilateral lateral ventricle choroid plexus papilloma is very rare and only a few cases has been reported.
