The hyperdense choroid plexus: A CT finding associated with aortic arch obstruction in the newborn
- 84 Downloads
We report the first observation of choroid plexus hyperdensity depicted by CT in two newborns with aortic arch obstruction. Neither infant had intracranial hemorrhage or infarction demonstrated by autopsy or cranial ultrasonography. Although not proven, we believe that such hyperdensity in these two cases represents abnormal vascularity within the choroid plexus related to upper extremity hypertension.
