Choroid plexus tumors (CPT) can present in the baseline magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with lesions compatible with leptomeningeal dissemination. Therapeutic strategy in this condition is controversial. We present a case of an infant with CPP and significant diffuse leptomeningeal contrast enhancement at diagnosis, which spontaneously resolved after removal of the primary tumor. In these challenging cases, several aspects, such as histopathological/molecular diagnosis and close radiological follow-up, should be taken into account to avoid unnecessary treatments.
