Author information

  • 1Department of Neurosurgery, Nagoya University School of Medicine, Japan.


A 34-year-old woman with primary choroid plexus papilloma occurring in the suprasellar region is reported. No connection with the ventricular system was found during intraoperative observations. The findings of pathological examinations such as hematoxylin and eosin staining, transthyretin (prealbumin) immunoreactivity, and electron microscopy were consistent with choroid plexus papilloma. Radiologically, it was extremely difficult to differentiate from tuberculum sellae meningioma. To our knowledge, this is the first case of primary choroid plexus papilloma in this location reported in the literature.
