Choroid plexus papillomas (CPPs) are uncommon, usually intraventricular, low-grade tumors, accounting for less than 1% of all intracranial neoplasms and 2-4% of brain tumors in children. Dissemination of CPPs to multiple levels of the neuraxis has been seldom observed. Thus far, only 26 adult patients have been reported in the English language literature.(More)
Low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma (LGFMS) is a rare mesenchymal tumor that is characterized by a benign histology but potentially aggressive clinical behavior, with a high rate of recurrence and metastasis.
