Pediatric Arachnoid Cyst Foundation
104 Lou Ave
Denton, MD 21629
The Pediatric Arachnoid Cyst Foundation's mission is to bring awareness, support, and continuing research to the medical community. They also aim to support families and patients who have been impacted with a pediatric Arachnoid Cyst diagnosis. Arachnoid cysts are fluid-filled sacs on the arachnoid sacs that cover the brain. In childhood, they can impair vision and coordination. In many cases arachnoid cysts do not cause symptoms (asymptomatic). In cases in which the symptoms occur, headaches, seizures and abnormal accumulation of excessive cerebrospinal fluid in the brain (hydrocephalus) are common.
