Mission Statement
This web site was designed as a place for expecting parents to find and exchange information and experiences related to the detection of Choroid Plexus Cysts (CPC's) in their fetuses. The author of this web site is not a medical professional, and this web site is not intended as a substitute for professional medical care or advice. If you come across any incorrect information contained in these pages, please email cpc@its2ez.com.


The Inspiration
This website was inspired by, and is dedicated to, Alison.  Ali was diagnosed with CPC's at 17 weeks.  The CPC's resolved by week 24, and no structural abnormalities were noted in the ultrasounds.
Ali was born in 1997!  Ali is, and continues to be, a completely healthy and happy little girl!  Our hope is that you will all have the same great fortune!

The Message Board
The CPC Web Message Board was originally included on this page.  It is the cornerstone of this website, and functions as an online parent support group.  Because of the numerous posts to the message board, it has been moved to a page of its own.  The CPC Web Message Board is now located at http://www.choroidplexuscyst.org/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl.  To read personal accounts and experiences, or post your own message, please visit the CPC Web Message Board.


Medline
Since the message board will only contain laypersons account's of experiences with CPC's, you may wish to consult more authoritative sources of information (in addition to the advice of your medical professional, of course). The National Library of Medicine provides a means for searching the MEDLINE database for medical journal abstracts related to your topic of research. Clicking on the link provided below will quickly and easily provide you with the results of a MEDLINE search for information on CPC's.
