Hydrocephalus


Hydrocephalus - Better Health Channel -open

Hydrocephalus is the abnormal enlargement of the brain cavities (ventricles) caused by a build-up of cerebrospinal fluid. Untreated, hydrocephalus can result in brain damage or death. Hydrocephalus can be present at birth or triggered by tumours, infection, bleeding in the brain or ageing. There is no cure, but hydrocephalus can be managed with surgery.
