Outcome After Surgery
- Choroid plexus papilloma – excellent: A survival rate of 80–85% at 10 years is reported for choroid plexus papillomas (23, 59). Choroid plexus papillomas can be cured by surgery (83).
- Choroid plexus carcinoma – poor: A survival rate of 40% is seen at 5 years with choroid plexus carcinomas. Complete resection remains an important component, since with incomplete resection the survival rate drops to less than 30% at 2 years (8, 21, 23-25).
Outcome After Multimodal Therapies
- Choroid plexus carcinoma: The outcome for patients with choroid plexus carcinomas is poor, with a survival rate at 10 years ranging from 6–50% (8, 23-25). Surgery with complete resection remains the main predictive factor.
