MIRANDA, P. et al. Xanthogranuloma of the choroid plexus of the third ventricle: case report and literature review. Neurocirugía [online]. 2005, vol.16, n.6, pp.518-522. ISSN 1130-1473.

Xanthogranulomas of the choroids plexus (XG) are benign tumours of debatable etiology which become rarely symptomatic. Only few cases have been studied with MRI. A new case of xanthogranuloma of the third ventricle showing unusual features in the CT and MRI studies in a 47-year-old man with a 2-month history of gait and urinary disturbances and cognitive impairment is reported. The literature concerning clinical and neuroradiological presentation of intracranial xanthogranulomas is reviewed.

Palabras clave : Xanthogranuloma; Third ventricle tumour; MRI.
