Thanks for writing to HCM

1.Arachnoid cysts are cysts containing C.S.F lined by arachnoid cells and
mostly these are asymptomatic .In some cases surgical decompression is required.
2.There is calcified granuloma in left high parietal region of brain without surrounding edema means it is not active and it is in healed stage. It also doesn't require any treatment.

Take Care
