    • Genetic abnormality

    • Can be caused by injury or disease

  • Treatment

    • Insert shunt system where a tube is inserted, which directs the CSF from the CNS to another area of the body to be drained and absorbed. This system also regulates the CSF flow rate

  • Prognosis

    • Overtime the ventricles become stronger over time and does not need the assistance of the machine
