Abstract
Arachnoid cysts are cerebrospinal fluid covered by arachnoidal cells and collagen that may develop between the surface of the brain and the cranial base or on the arachnoid membrane, one of the 3 meningeal layers that cover the brain and the spinal cord.1 In this article, we describe a 10-year-old boy with an arachnoid cyst of the right fronto-temporal area that led to a near reflex paresis in the eyes. This presentation has been never reported in the literature.
Keywords : Arachnoid cyst, Near reflex, frontal eye field
