Abstract

Twenty-four cases of supratentorial primary arachnoid cysts operated with different techniques are reviewed: both cyst shunting or extirpation may lead to a good early clinical result, but the former is less dangerous and more indicated in a particular group of patients; late results are better in the shunted patients. CT scan is almost always diagnostic and is mandatory postoperatively to assess the late results.
