I discuss arachnoid cysts, or excess fluid build up in the brain and spinal cord, and the treatments that are used to control or eliminate them. First, I talk about the causes and origin of arachnoid cysts in the central nervous system, and how frequently cysts are diagnosed. Next, I discuss the medical significance of cysts and their potential effects. Finally, I describe the current diagnostic procedures used to find arachnoid cysts, as well as current and developing technologies that are used to treat these cysts.
