Arachnoid cysts are a rare entity in the spinal cord, presenting as benign lesions usually passing off asymptomatically. Clinical manifestations appear on compression of cord or roots and consecutive neurologic symptoms. The arachnoid cysts in the spine have been classified as Type 1-extradural cysts without spinal nerve roots; Type 2-extradural cysts with spinal nerve root fibers; Type 3-intradural cysts. The extradural cysts are thought to arise from the herniation through the dural defects whereas the intradural cysts are thought to arise from modifications of arachnoid trabeculae. The pathogenesis of intramedullary cysts is unclear with various hypothesis of congenital, traumatic and inflammatory causes.Intramedullary arachnoid cysts presenting with neurologic deficits have been reported in pediatric age group with only 2 case reports in adults in the literature.
