Name Arachnoid Cysts
Synonyms Arachnoid Cyst, Intracranial | Arachnoid Cysts, Intracranial | Arachnoid Diverticula | Arachnoid Diverticulas | Cyst, Arachnoid | Cyst, Intracranial Arachnoid | Cyst, Leptomeningeal | Cysts, Arachnoid | Cysts, Intracranial Arachnoid | Cysts, Leptomeningeal | Diverticula, Arachnoid | Diverticulas, Arachnoid | Intracranial Arachnoid Cyst | Intracranial Arachnoid Cysts | Leptomeningeal Cyst | Leptomeningeal Cysts
Definition Intracranial or spinal cavities containing a cerebrospinal-like fluid, the wall of which is composed of arachnoidal cells. They are most often developmental or related to trauma. Intracranial arachnoid cysts usually occur adjacent to arachnoidal cistern and may present with HYDROCEPHALUS; HEADACHE; SEIZURES; and focal neurologic signs.
