Unilateral ventriculomegaly (enlargement of the fluid filled spaces in the brain) with a measurement in the lateral ventricle of 10 mm can be normal if the ventricle does not continue to enlarge and no other abnormalities are found.

The size of the ventricle is usually followed using more ultrasounds to evaluate for any continuing change in size.  If the size of the ventricle stays stable, your baby is unlikely to have any problems.  If there were other abnormalities found on the ultrasound, you need to discuss the specific findings with your obstetrician/perinatologist.

There is no specific treatment that can affect ventricular size.
