Bochdalek's flower basket

Dr Craig Hacking and Dr David Little et al.

Bochdalek's flower basket is the eponymous name for the incidental finding of protrusion of the choroid plexus through the foramina of Luschka. This is a relatively common finding.

It is an important normal variant to recognise as the presence of protruding calcified choroid tissue in the fourth ventricle can be confused with subarachnoid haemorrhage 2 or a mass.
