Choroid plexus carcinomas (CPCs) are rare brain tumors, with preponderance in infants. They are highly invasive tumors with a dismal prognosis. The 5-year survival rates for CPC vary between 10% and 50%. They commonly arise from the lateral ventricles. CPCs in infants present with the subtle features of raised intracranial tension (ICT). Surgical resection is the mainstay of management with adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy. We report a case of 11-month-old child with CPC, presented with subtle nonspecific signs and symptoms of raised ICT, treated by surgical resection and chemotherapy.
