Choroid plexus tumors or “Plexus-chorioideuscarcinomata” are rare malignancies with only a few reported cases. Choroid plexus carcinoma (CPC) is classified under the World Health Organization grade 3. CPC has fewer chances of occurrence in adults than in children. Recurrent CPCs have even more rare occurrences. Herein, we discuss a treated case of CPC in a 26-year-old adult male with spinal metastasis and delayed occurrence of local brain recurrence treated with radiotherapy for symptoms palliation. Clinical features, radiological findings, histopathological examination, and immunohistochemical findings are important in the diagnosis and management of such lesions. It is important to be aware of and know how to deal with such recurrent lesions.
