Choroid plexus carcinoma (CPC) is a rare tumor with usually severe prognosis, whose optimal treatment has not yet been established. The exact role of complete surgical resection, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy has been debated but not clarified. We report one girl with CPC diagnosed at age 3 months and apparently cured with minimal surgical resection, chemotherapy, and delayed irradiation. At the age of 8 years, she is well, with minor psychomotor retardation and growth hormone deficiency as the only sequelae.
