Hydrocephalus is an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within cavities in the brain called ventricles. It may be congenital or acquired. The excess fluid puts pressure on the brain, which can damage it.
The damage to the brain can cause a wide range of symptoms, including:
• being sick
• blurred vision
• difficulty walking
HOW IS HYDROCEPHALUS DIAGNOSED?
Hydrocephalus is diagnosed by a thorough examination of the head such as noting and comparing head circumference. MRI and CT scans would be used to create images of the brain to observe and study more closely.
HOW IS HYDROCEPHALUS TREATED?
This disease can be treated with surgery. A patient could either opt for the insertion of a shunt to drain the excess fluid or a ventriculostomy.
