Whilst there is no "cure" as such the condition can be managed by surgical insertion of a shunt which drains the cerebral spinal fluid from the ventricles of the brain so that pressure does not build up.
The website for the organization "ASBAH" is a great place for information and resources.
Hi, Thank you very much for your question. Hydrocephalus is a condition in which the cerebrospinal fluid gets abnormally accumulated in the brain cavities. This may cause increased intra cranial pressure leading to headache, convulsions, mental disability etc. It is constantly being formed in the ventricles of brain and drained out to circulatory system through special foramens. Hydrocephalus occurs due to either blockage of these foramens or overproduction of CSF. The treatment of hydrocephalus is surgical shunt placement. An alternative treatment for obstructive hydrocephalus is endoscopic third ventriculostomy but it may not be applicable to all patients depending upon internal anatomy of brain. Hope this information proved helpful.
