Advanced Treatment of Arachnoid Cysts with Dr. David Sandberg
What are pediatric arachnoid cysts?
Arachnoid cysts are collections in the brain of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) surrounded by a thin, transparent membrane. Some arachnoid cysts are small, incidental findings and cause no symptoms. Small arachnoid cysts often do not enlarge over time and the majority never require intervention. Others can grow and cause a variety of problems, depending on their location in the brain. Symptoms can occur at any age but are most common in childhood.
