Hydrocephalus is a condition involving excessive accumulation of fluid in the brain. The condition is caused when an accident, injury, or surgical trauma causes cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), a clear fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord, to collect in the brain.
When CSF levels reach dangerous levels, it causes the ventricles to widen abmornally, causing increased pressure on brain tissues.
When the event is caused my a medical mistake or error, or a delay in diagnosis by a healthcare professional, it can lead to including brain damage and death.
The dangers of a delayed diagnosis of hydrocephalus were brought to light in 2009, when actress Natasha Richardson suffered what was thought to be a minor fall on a Canadian ski slope. Although Ms. Richardson's case was unusual, in that she never lost conciousness and likely thought her injury too minor to consider medical treatment, it brings to light the need for prompt medical attention for what appears to be a minor head injury.
