herniation of the arachnoid through a congenital defect of the dura (see Elsberg, Dyke and Brewer 1 and Lehman 3 ). Thus, they differ fundamentally from the intradural cyst described in the opening paragraph, as well as the intracranial cyst now to be considered. CLINICAL HISTORY First Admission to Hospital: 29 May 1942. Discharged on 3 June 1942 . Chief Complaint . Intense headache and a blurring of vision. Present Illness . The patient, a male aged 34, an enlisted man in the Army and previously a steel worker, had had excruciating intermittent headaches and

presence of bone or other organoid structures in tumors of this group. In none of the patients in this series was it possible to make a definite diagnosis of the type of lesion from the roentgenograms. There was evidence of increased intracranial pressure and, in some, internal hydrocephalus was present. Ventriculograms or encephalograms demonstrated filling defects indicating the size and location of the tumors. The intracranial cystic teratomas and teratoid tumors varied a great deal from the operative point of view. Some were clearly demarcated by a connective

hemisphere or even of both hemispheres; 3) the patients live in rural areas. We have never found a case in Montevideo. 4) The presence of a hyatid cyst elsewhere in the body. According to Dew 15 80 per cent of cerebral hydatid cysts are associated with cysts in the liver. But of the 13 intracranial cysts reported here only 2 were associated with pulmonary cysts and no hepatic cysts were observed. Furthermore, the presence of cysts elsewhere in the body is far from conclusive. Schroeder 39 reported the case of a child with a hydatid cyst in the lung and another in the

are recorded much more rarely. In Spriggs' 11 studies the cells shed from a glioblastoma multiforme were 12–22 micra with usually single nuclei containing finely scattered chromatin. Larson et al. 2 described cells of two astrocytomas as spindle-shaped glia cells. Naylor 8 found cells characteristic of astrocytoma in material aspirated from intracranial cysts and the ventricular fluid. The cells showed irregular hyperchromatic nuclei with relatively large nucleoli. In 1 case of astrocytoma McMenemey and Cumings 5 described tumor cells resembling epithelial

spinal cord of a paraplegic sheep by Dupuy. 24 (2) Primary intradural cyst . is rare When present, it appears as a single cyst. Diez 22 could accept only 8 cases in the literature. Multiple intradural cysts are secondary to rupture and dissemination from an intracranial cyst. 25 (3) Primary extradural cyst . is also rare Usually, the lesion will have arisen from an undetected vertebral focus. 19, 59 Most cases of compression myelopathy by hydatid cysts belong to one of the two subsequent groups.
