Choroid plexus papilloma is a very rare disease in children. The manifestations of the disease differ according to the tumor size and the location. Increased CSF production by the tumor, hydrocephalus and symptoms of increased ICP are the main symptoms. The first line of treatment is surgical excision, but sometimes excision itself is very difficult due to the site and the size of the mass. Adjunctive radiation therapy or chemotherapy is not recommended. Since gross total resection without adjunctive therapy offers highest likelihood of success. Significant prognostic factors are sex, age, time of diagnosis, the duration between the appearance of symptoms and diagnosis, tumor volume, tumor site and the extent of surgery. We report a case of choroid plexus papilloma, in a child with anorexia and failure to thrive.
