Choroid plexus cysts CPC are usually found at the end of the second trimester of pregnancy. Sometimes they can be

accidentally and found on prenatal ultrasound examinations. Vast majority of CPC resolve spontaneously by 28th weeks

gestation. In the older aged group the choroid plexus cysts are extremely rare pathomorphologic medical entity. Since

they are almost always asymptomatic, they are therefore accidentally found on brain magnetic resonance MR or computed

tomography CT scans. They are usually located in the lateral ventricles and measure around 2 cm in diameter.

We present a case of a 75-year old male with a giant choroid plexus cyst whose leading symptom was excruciating headache

refractory to previous conservative therapy. He underwent surgery when osteoplastic craniotomy was performed

with cyst fenestration and ablation. His recovery was uneventful with total regression of headaches. Reviewing the recent

literature we did not find such a case considering the patients age and the size of the choroid plexus cyst.
