93 Possible Causes for Arrested Hydrocephalus

  • Hydrocephalus

    The levels of various cytokines (IL-6, IL-8, IL-12, IL-10 and TNF-α) were measured in patients with idiopathic active normal pressure hydrocephalus, arrested hydrocephalus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 'Arrested' hydrocephalus is said to have occurred when the intracranial pressure (ICP) returns to normal, despite the ventricles remaining dilated.[patient.info] Moreover, we observed that the levels of IL-6 and IL-8 in the group with idiopathic active hydrocephalus were significantly higher compared to patients with arrested hydrocephalus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Communicating Hydrocephalus

    Arrested hydrocephalus can occur in people who have a minor blockage in the CSF flow.[headwayabiaustralia.org] 'Arrested' hydrocephalus is said to have occurred when the intracranial pressure (ICP) returns to normal, despite the ventricles remaining dilated.[patient.info] In X-linked complex spastic paraplegia type I, arrested hydrocephalus with spasticity and mental deficiency is prominent.[medlink.com]

  • Skull Fracture

    A 12-year-old male who was a known case of arrested hydrocephalus sustained a mild head injury and was found to have a linear fracture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Till date, growing skull fractures due to an underlying arrested hydrocephalus or subdural hygroma have not been reported. We are reporting two such rare cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Growing skull fractures can occur as complications of mild head injury sustained in the setting of either arrested hydrocephalus or subdural hygroma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebellar Stroke

    Coning of the cerebellar tonsils can occur rapidly (within hours), causing respiratory arrest. Hydrocephalus. Posterior fossa tumours or abscess.[patient.info] […] syndrome (Wallenberg's syndrome) with hemiataxia, vertigo, dysarthria, ptosis and miosis Space-occupying: enlarging masses in the cerebellum may obstruct CSF flow, causing hydrocephalus[patient.info]

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

    'Arrested' hydrocephalus is said to have occurred when the intracranial pressure (ICP) returns to normal, despite the ventricles remaining dilated.[patient.info] Arrested hydrocephalus can occur in people who have a minor blockage in the CSF flow.[headway.org.uk] 'Arrested' hydrocephalus needs no treatment if it remains asymptomatic but the patient will benefit from regular developmental or psychometric assessments to catch any ill[patient.info]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    This review summarizes both the approach to establishing the diagnosis and treatment options, including the placement of intravascular coils to arrest the bleeding.[dx.doi.org] Common management problems include vasospasm, hydrocephalus, and rebleeding. Funding and Disclosures Dr. Tarr reports having received consulting fees from Cordis.[dx.doi.org]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    A massive aneurysmal bleed raises intracranial pressure, resulting in arrest of cerebral perfusion, unconsciousness, and HIE.[neuropathology-web.org] Hydrocephalus may develop due to blockage of CSF flow by subarachnoid clots and from meningeal fibrosis which results from their organization.[neuropathology-web.org]

  • Hemorrhagic Stroke

    A massive aneurysmal bleed raises intracranial pressure, resulting in arrest of cerebral perfusion, unconsciousness, and HIE.[neuropathology-web.org] Hydrocephalus may develop due to blockage of CSF flow by subarachnoid clots and from meningeal fibrosis which results from their organization.[neuropathology-web.org]

  • Shunt Nephritis

    Abstract We describe three patients with arrested hydrocephalus in whom glomerulonephritis developed secondary to Staphylococcus epidermidis bacteremia from an infected ventriculoatrial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Umbilical Fistula

    A noncontrast computerized tomography scan (NCCT) of the brain revealed the ventricular end of the shunt in situ with arrested hydrocephalus [Figure 3].[pediatricneurosciences.com] Figure 1: Clinical photograph showing umbilical adenoma with purulent discharge Click here to view Figure 3: Noncontrast computerized tomography head showing arrested hydrocephalus[pediatricneurosciences.com]
