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.
If you experienced a difficult delivery and your child develops symptoms characteristic of hydrocephalus, you may be entitled to compensation.
