What is Hydrocephalus?

Hydrocephalus, also called water in the brain, is a condition where there is an abnormal build-up of CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) in the cavities (ventricles) of the brain. The build-up is often caused by an obstruction that prevents proper fluid drainage.

Treatment for hydrocephalus typically involves surgical intervention to either remove the excess fluid or to create a new pathway for the fluid to drain properly, thus relieving the pressure on the brain. In some cases, a shunt system may be implanted to divert the excess CSF away from the brain to another part of the body where it can be absorbed. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment are important for managing hydrocephalus and preventing complications.
