The cistern of lamina terminalis is a cistern of the subarachnoid space in the brain. This particular cistern lies in front of (rostral to) the lamina terminalis and anterior commissure between the two frontal lobes of the cerebrum.[1] The cistern contains cerebrospinal fluid, and connects the suprasellar cistern to the pericallosal cistern.[1] The anterior cerebral artery and the anterior communicating artery are travel within this cistern.[1]
