Papillary carcinoma of choroids plexus is very rare. Only a few cases have been described in the literature, and it is most commonly found in the pediatric population. A further observation is added now. A 20-year-old lady presented with complaints of headache and vomiting from past one and half months, headache was increasing in severity and there was relief after vomiting. On examination, no abnormality was detected in any of her systems. The patient underwent computed tomography scan of brain, which showed space occupying lesion in the right frontal lobe. She underwent near total excision of the lesion. Postoperative period was uneventful. Histopathology was suggestive of papillary carcinoma of choroids plexus and was confirmed with immunohistochemistry. The patient received whole brain radiation and intrathecal chemotherapy. The patient tolerated the treatment well, except for grade two vomiting. She has completed one and half years of follow-up and is disease free.
