Four cases of Choroid Plexus Papilloma (CPP) of the pos­te­ri­or fossa are pre­sent­ed. Two cases had extra­ven­tric­u­lar exten­sion from the ­fourth ven­tri­cle to the Cerebellopontine Angle (CPA) ­through the fora­men of Luschka, in one the CPP was locat­ed pri­mar­i­ly in the CPA and the ­fourth case was only in the ­fourth ven­tri­cle. CPP are rare ­tumours of the Central Nervous System and pri­mary extra­ven­tric­u­lar loca­tion is extreme­ly rare. We know that pri­mary loca­tion in the extra­ven­tric­u­lar and intra­ven­tric­u­lar ­regions and extra­ven­tric­u­lar exten­sion have dif­fer­ent path­o­log­i­cal mech­a­nisms. The main pur­pose of this paper is to dis­cuss and ­review some pos­sible expla­na­tions for these mech­a­nisms.
