Abstract Share this page

Physiologic calcification of the choroid plexus increases in frequency and extent with age. As demonstrated in this report, it is visualized nine to 15 times more frequently with computed tomography (CT) than with plain skull radiography. Calcification involving the temporal horns is associated with neurofibromatosis. Young patients with exuberant calcification in the region of the glomerula, or with calcification extending into the bodies of the lateral ventricles should be evaluated for conditions associated with pathological calcification of the choroid plexus. This also applies to patients of any age in whom calcification of the choroid plexus in the roof of the third ventricle or in the region of the foramen of Monro can be visualized with routine CT center and window levels.
