Choroid Plexus Brain Tumor

What is a choroid plexus brain tumor?

Choroid plexus brain tumors develop in the tissue located in the spaces of the brain called ventricles. This tissue makes cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which surrounds the brain and spinal cord. These rare tumors are seen more often in younger children. Between 10 and 20 percent of brain tumors that occur within the first year of life are choroid plexus tumors.
