Abstract

Diagnosis of arachnoid cyst has often been delayed and uncertain in the past, but development of computerized tomography has greatly improved the ease and accuracy of their identification, helping to provide for earlier surgical treatment and better care of patients. Arachnoid cysts of the middle cranial fossa may be associated with a unique complication, namely subdural hematoma. The hematoma with its membrane may be located either superficial to the cyst or within the cyst. Recently we have experienced two cases of arachnoid cyst of the middle cranial fossa with chronic subdural hematoma. We present the cases and their pathogenesis will be reviewed.
