Developmental anomaly information

Definition: Hydrocephalus is defined as abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the ventricles of the brain. The causes are usually genetic but can also be acquired and usually occur within the first few months of life, which include 1) intraventricular matrix hemorrhages in premature infants, 2) infections, 3) type II Arnold-Chiari malformation, 4) aqueduct atresia (the most common cause of congenital hydrocephalus and stenosis), and 5) Dandy-Walker malformation. About 80-90% of fetuses or newborn infants with spina bifida—often associated with meningocele or myelomeningocele—develop hydrocephalus.
