The authors describe their experience with endoscopic ventriculo-cysto-cisternostomy and placement of cisterno-cysto-venticulo peritoneal shunt for suprasellar arachnoid cyst for a child with bobble head doll movements. The abnormal head movements improved and follow up imaging showed reduction in the cyst and ventricular size. The benefits of minimally invasive endoscopic ventriculocystocisternostomy with endoscopic guided placement of cisterno-cysto-ventriculo peritoneal shunt is been discussed.
