Abstract
In this case series, six patients having frontal or temporal arachnoid cysts with accompanying psychiatric symptoms were represented. It was remarkable that patients get a diagnosis of not otherwise specified category, had only a partial remission and bizarre and inappropriate behavior. In cases with these features brain imaging and evaluation by neurology-neurosurgery clinicians might be recommended.

Key words: arachnoid cyst, diagnosis, diagnostic imaging

Hastalarda başka türlü adlandırılamayan kategorisinde bir tanı konulmasına neden olabilecek renkli klinik tablolar olması, tedaviye kısmi yanıt alınması, duygulanım sorunları, tuhaf veya uygunsuz davranışlar dikkat çekmiştir. Bu özellikleri taşıyan olgularda beyin görüntülemesi yapılması ve nöroloji-beyin cerrahisi hekimleri tarafından değerlendirmesi önerilebilir.
