Özet

Supraseller arachnoid are rare lesions that constitute approximately 5-12.5% of the arachnoid cysts. We present a male infant diagnosed in utero with supraseller arachnoid cyst and treated with endoscopic ventriculocystocisternotomy on the 38th day of life. The patient developed hyponatremia as a result of the celebral salt wasting after the operation.
