Therere are choroid plexus cysts on my baby's ultrasound. Does that mean holes in the brain? What else?

In brief: Usually benign.

The choroid plexus is a normal structure in the fetal brain, that makes the cerebrospinal fluid.
Cysts can appear and disappear within the choroid and it usually is normal, but if there are a lot of cysts then testing for down's or similar syndromes may be a good idea.
