Case report and literature review. Retrocerebellar arachnoid cyst with syringomyelia: There have been several reports of large arachnoid cysts associated with syringomyelia ,10, In most published cases the syringomye lia has been attributed to obstruction of CSF flow at theforamen magnum by the arachnoid cyst itself.
In the majority of these cases, the development of syringomyelia has been related to the obstruction of CSF flow caused by the downward invagination of the cyst itself within the foramen magnum. Cerebellumchoroid plexus of the fourth ventricle. Br J Neurosurg ; In these cases there exists a pressure gradient across the cranial and spinal compartments, due either to increased intracranial pressure, as happens in supratentorial masses or hydrocephalus, or to CSF diversion into the spinal compartment.
In all these cases, there was a coexistent syringomyelia artetia, Diagram of the arterial circulation at the base of the brain PICA labeled at bottom right. The medial branch continues backward to the poateroinferior between the two hemispheres of the cerebellum; while the lateral supplies the under surface of the cerebellum, as far as its lateral border, where it anastomoses with the anterior inferior cerebellar and the superior cerebellar branches of the basilar artery.
On 4 April, the patient underwent suboccipital craniectomy and Cl laminectomy with ample removal of the arachnoid artetia walls. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Arachnoid cysts are benign collections of cerebrospinal fluid CSF that develop as the result of an abnormal duplication of the arachnoid membranes during brain development.
Syringomyelia associated with hydrocephalus and Blake’s pouch cyst. The dura mater was closed with a dural graft. Introduction Arachnoid cysts are benign collections of cerebrospinal fluid CSF that develop as the result of an abnormal duplication of the arachnoid membranes during brain development. Neurosurg Focus ;11 1 article 2.
Magnetic resonance imaging MRI showed a retrocerebellar arachnoid cyst, descent of the cerebellar tonsils and a syringomyelic cavity extending from C2 to T6 Fig. Wikipedia articles incorporating text from the 20th edition of Gray’s Anatomy Arteries of the head and neck. J Neurosurg ; The posterior fossa originates by endochondral ossification of the cartilaginous scaffold that forms the cranial base as well as the first four somites that model the occipital bone 4,9.

Posterior inferior cerebellar artery The three major arteries of the cerebellum: Rarely the syringomyelia is caused by acquired Chiari malformation due to a retrocerebellar arachnoid cyst. Occlusion of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery or one of its branches, or of the vertebral artery leads to lateral medullary syndrome also called Wallenberg syndrome.
xrteria Branches from this artery supply the choroid plexus of the fourth ventricle. From Adams et al. There was also dissociated hypoesthesia on his right arm and shoulder.
This page was last edited on 27 Novemberat Discussion The most frequent reported cause of cerebellar tonsil herniation is the Chiari type 1 congenital malformation. Those cases were managed with a variety of procedures aimed at addressing the underlying pathogenetic mechanism, and included ventriculo- and cysto-peritoneal shunting, endoscopic fenestration, or direct approach to the cyst arheria foramen magnum decompression and cyst opening or excision.
Several theories arterria been proposed to explain both the tonsillar descent and the frequently associated syringomyelia
