SANCHEZ MONTERREY, Ivón Aimé et al. Papilloma of choroid plexuses. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2012, vol.84, n.1, pp.92-96. ISSN 0034-7531.

The papillomas of choroid plexuses are non-frequent tumors of neuroectoderm origin accounting for the less of the 5 % of total of tumors of the central nervous system (CNS) in children. The clinic may be caused by the increase of the intracranial pressure due to the usually present hydrocephalus. The surgery is curative with a survival percentage of almost the 100 % at 5 years and occasional recurrences. This is the case of a newborn diagnosed with papilloma of choroid plexuses and a favorable evolution.

Keywords : papilloma of the choroid plexuses; newborn.
