NCI Definition: A malignant neoplasm arising from the choroid plexus. It shows anaplastic features and usually invades neighboring brain structures. Cerebrospinal fluid metastases are frequent. (Adapted from WHO) [1]

Choroid plexus carcinomas most frequently harbor alterations in XRCC1, TP53, POLQ, FGFR1, and ERCC6 [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Choroid Plexus Carcinoma

XRCC1 P187L, XRCC1 Mutation, TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, TP53 c.142-c.212 Missense, and TP53 c.1-c.137 Missense are the most common alterations in choroid plexus carcinoma [2].
