Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Choroid plexus papillomas are rarely located in the third ventricle. The case of a 49-year-old man who had a total microsurgical excision of such a lesion is reported. The neuroradiological features and the surgical results are discussed, with a review of 25 other cases reported in the literature. Microsurgical technique made possible a good exposure and successful complete removal of the tumor.
