Arachnoid cysts are benign cysts that occur in the cerebrospinal axis in relation to the arachnoid membrane. These are usually congenital and asymptomatic. We herein report endocrine manifestations associated with large intracranial arachnoid cyst in two of our patients, the first case presented with the combination of precocious puberty and growth hormone deficiency and the second case with precocious puberty; subsequently, we discuss the relevant literature on this association.
