hi I just had an MRI it says everything is normal, however the 3rd ventricle and lateral were dilated, and there was NO mass lesion detected..but it says obstructive hydrocephalus..now I'm confuse..how calm the passage of CSF was block if there is no mass liason..I'm worried..please help thanx
Well you can have obstructive hydrocephalus even though you have no tumors or cysts. This can happen due to brain bleeds and due to stenosis in the pathways of CSF flow. If third and lateral ventricles are both dilated then the stenosis or bleed has happened before the third ventricle. Please discuss with your doctor immediately. Take care!
