    Arachnoid cysts are central nervous system lesions that infrequently occur in childhood. They can be mobile and produce partial or complete obstruction in the Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) circulation. They are usually present at birth and are asymptomatic, although sometimes the symptoms appear in adolescence or adulthood due to the growth acceleration [1,2].

    Depending on their size and location, they may produce neurological symptoms due to a blockage of the CSF fl ow through the ventricular system such as intermittent headache, drops attack or the "Booble-head doll syndrome"; which consists of continuous head movements forwards and backwards with a frequency of 2Hz-3Hz. Fortunately, even intracranial hypertension symptoms are the most severe, they are not common.
