Arachnoid cysts are benign, congenital, nonneoplastic, extra-axial, intra-arachnoid lesions filled with similar to or exactly like cerebrospinal fluid. These cysts are reported to account for at least 1% of all intracranial mass lesions. Most patients present during the first two decades of life; however, presentation during adulthood is not uncommon. Arachnoid cysts are often discovered as incidental findings on cranial imaging. Surgical treatment of arachnoid cysts with bilateral subdural hygroma is controversial. We report a rare presentation of an arachnoid cyst with bilateral subdural hygroma.
