Choroid Plexus Metastasis from Carcinoma of the Bladder: Case Report and Review of the Literature

Abstract

We present here a case report of a 40-year old male with adenocarcinoma of the bladder and solitary metastasis to the choroid plexus of the right lateral ventricle. This is the first such report of such a metastasis in association with bladder carcinoma. Systemic metastases frequently occur in patients with carcinoma of the bladder but involvement of central nervous system is relatively uncommon: less than 1% of patients with carcinoma of the bladder present an intracerebral metastasis. In the majority of cases there are either multiple CNS metastases or other distant metastases. A few cases present with solitary metastases to the CNS without evidence of recurrent or disseminated disease.
