Abstract

Choroid plexus carcinomas(CPCs) are rare neuroectodermal malginancies occuring mostly in young children of less than two years old, of which prognosis have been reported extremely grave. Generally, the extent of surgical resection has been regarded the most significant prognostic factor. However, the inherent hypervascularity and softness of these tumors make the total removal very difficult. We present our experience in a 18-months-old child with a large intraventricular CPC, of which total resection was achieved by the use of preoperative neoadjuvant chemotherapy with ICE regimen(Ifosfamide, Cisplatinum, Etoposide).
