The four choroid plexuses in the brain ventricles are not identical, but differences among them have rarely been studied. The present work concerns the inflammatory and hemorrhagic choroid plexitis produced in Lewis rats by a single gavage of cholecalciferol (vitamin D(3)) or related steroids with vitamin D activity. Plexitis was very severe in the fourth ventricular plexus, somewhat less severe in the lateral ventricular plexuses, and almost absent in the third ventricular plexus. These findings were compared to the scanty data from the literature on differences among the plexuses.
