All the three surgical techniques (cystoperitoneal shunt, extirpation, fenestration and shunt) adopted in 30 patients operated on in our Institute for supratentorial arachnoid cyst, gave good results. The choice of the type of intervention could perhaps be based not only on the characteristic of the cyst (location, dimension, left or right hemisphere) but also on the global clinical evaluation of the patient.
