Can Hydrocephalus be treated without shunt surgery. For infants. Can it be treated only by medicine.

1 Doctor Answered
It depends on what kind of hydrocephalus does the child have. There are basically two types of hydrocephalus. In one type, shunt is must, in other type it can be done endoscopically without shunt. But in any case it can't be cured with medicines only. Hope this information helps you.
