What is hydrocephalus?

Hydrocephalus is the excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid inside of the skull, which leads to brain swelling. This is because in the interior of the brain there are spaces called the ventricles, which are natural cavities that communicate with each other and are filled by cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) or cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), as it is also known.

The problem occurs when the amount of this liquid increases inside the skull. This abnormal increase in the volume of cerebrospinal fluid dilates the ventricles and compresses the brain against the bones of the skull, causing a series of symptoms that need emergency treatment to prevent more serious damage. Hydrocephalus can often be detected even before birth by periodic ultrasound.
