Abstract

The authors studied a 26-year-old healthy subject in whom a large arachnoid cyst of the right middle cranial fossa was revealed by chance. As there were no subjective or objective neurological findings, we checked the existence of any neuropsychological impairment. In spite of this, the patient obtained a good general performance level and sometimes the hemisphere containing the cyst performed better, in accordance with the patient's handedness.
