AJR Am J Roentgenol. 2009 Jan;192(1):32-40. doi: 10.2214/ajr.08.1128.


Objective: The aim of this article is to review the embryology of the choroid plexus and the spectrum of disorders involving the choroid plexus in children and to illustrate their radiologic features.

Conclusion: The choroid plexus is an important part of the CNS that can be the primary or secondary location for many congenital abnormalities or pathologic conditions such as neoplasms, infections, inflammatory processes, cysts, and vascular malformations.
