Temporal Horn Choroid Plexus Papilloma Presenting with Seizures in Adulthood: Clinical Case Report and Review of the Literature.
BACKGROUND: Choroid plexus papillomas (CPPs) are benign World Health Organization grade I tumors that comprise 2%-4% of all brain tumors among children and less than 1% of brain tumors in adults. Most adult cases occur in the fourth ventricle, with only 1 previous report describing an adult patient with a temporal horn CPP.
CASE DESCRIPTION: We report a rare case of a temporal horn CPP presenting in an adult with seizures. We performed a minimally invasive subtemporal approach for gross total resection of the lesion.
CONCLUSIONS: CPP presenting in the temporal horn is rare among adults. We discuss the surgical nuances of the subtemporal approach for resection and review the literature regarding adult presentation of CPP and the treatment strategies for adult CPP.
