abnormal tela choroidea morphology

DEF: any structural anomaly of that portion of the brain pia mater that covers the ependymal roof or, in the case of the lateral ventricle, medial wall of a cerebral ventricle; vascularized tela choroidea is choroid plexus
SYN: abnormal choroid membrane morphology

Consider amending the definition of "abnormal choroid plexus morphology [MP:0000820]" to read as:

DEF: any structural anomaly of the infoldings of blood vessels of the pia mater covered by a thin coat of ependymal cells that form tufted projections into the third, fourth, and lateral ventricles of the brain; choroid plexuses secrete cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and act as a filtration system, removing metabolic waste, foreign substances, and excess neurotransmitters from the CSF
