Arachnoid cysts are benign developmental anomalies of the central nervous system and arise in virtually all locations where arachnoid membrane exists. It is reported that they account for approximately 1% of all intracranial lesions and are caused by the splitting of the arachnoid membrane. This book provides current research on the epidemiology, the treatments available, and clinical outcomes of arachnoid cysts. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
