Arachnoid cysts are rare lesions of the spine and occur most commonly in the extradural location. Intramedullary location is a very rare site, and only 15 cases have been reported in literature till date. We report a series of three cases with intramedullary arachnoid cysts having diverse etiopathogenesis and clinical presentations. Recurrent cyst and cyst associated with tethering of the cord are unique to our series and have not been reported previously.
