Two Cases of Fetal Arachnoid Cyst Diagnosed by Prenatal Ultrasonography

Abstract

Fetal abnormalities in central nervous system are now recognized more often with the increasing use of high-resolution prenatal sonography. Arachnoid cysts, because of their compression of adjacent brain tissue, may require neurosurgical intervention but otherwise they have a good long- term prognosis. The differential diagnosis of intracranial lesions is important to allow accurate counselling and also to optimize neonatal management. We report the two cases of fetal arachnoid cyst diagnosed with prenatal ultrasonography
