The head of neurosurgery department in Razi Hospital confirmed that this cyst was removed from his brain without being ripped off and this was a critical point during the surgical procedure. He added: "since it was a rare type of cyst, in the case of being ripped off, it would have popped out and spread directly into the brain and led to infection in other places".
