Hydrocephalus

Hydrocephalus in Infants Leads to Brain Damage

Basically, hydrocephalus means an excessive accumulation of fluid in the brain. This pressure has the potential to damage the brain’s tissues.

Hydrocephalus can occur at any age, but it is more common among infants and older adults. This condition can be present at birth or occur following a stroke, disease or brain injury, especially in the elderly.

Its causes are not always clear. In infants, however, hydrocephalus may develop as a result of birth injury — a physical trauma.

Symptoms of this condition in infants include an unusually large head or head that is rapidly increasing in size. There may also be a bulging spot on the top of the head. Children with hydrocephalus are often subject to vomiting, seizures and poor feeding.
