27 Possible Causes for Arrested Hydrocephalus, MRI Scan of the Brain Abnormal

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

    Arrested hydrocephalus can occur in people who have a minor blockage in the CSF flow.[headway.org.uk] 'Arrested' hydrocephalus is said to have occurred when the intracranial pressure (ICP) returns to normal, despite the ventricles remaining dilated.[patient.info] However, if the balance is disrupted spontaneously, or after a minor head injury, then the resulting increase in CSF pressure is called arrested hydrocephalus.[headway.org.uk]

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    If arrest or onset of resolution of ventriculomegaly is not apparent within approximately one month, continued progression and necessity for intervention are to be expected[pediatrics.aappublications.org] MRI or CT scan of the brain demonstrates ventricular enlargement disproportionate to cortical atrophy.[medcomic.com] The data thus define a state of NPH after intraventricular hemorrhage and indicate that approximately half of such cases will not develop progressive hydrocephalus with increased[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

  • Arnold Chiari Malformation

    […] theory, caudal traction theory, small posterior fossa/hindbrain overgrowth theory, hydrocephalus and hydrodynamic theory of Gardner, and the lack of embryological ventricular[doi.org] MRI will show the abnormal CSF flow and configuration and position of the brain and spinal cord [6] .[physio-pedia.com] Decompression of the foramen magnum gives good results in terms of arresting deterioration.[patient.info]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    A massive aneurysmal bleed raises intracranial pressure , resulting in arrest of cerebral perfusion, unconsciousness, and HIE.[neuropathology-web.org] MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) can detect abnormal blood vessels, underlying tumors, and some aneurysms.[healthcommunities.com] Hydrocephalus may develop due to blockage of CSF flow by subarachnoid clots and from meningeal fibrosis which results from their organization.[neuropathology-web.org]

  • Obstructive 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] However, if the balance is disrupted spontaneously, or after a minor head injury, then the resulting increase in CSF pressure is called arrested hydrocephalus.[headwayabiaustralia.org]

  • Cerebellar Infarction

    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]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    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]

  • 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] […] and MRI of the head/brain.[beaumont.edu] 'Arrested' hydrocephalus is said to have occurred when the intracranial pressure (ICP) returns to normal, despite the ventricles remaining dilated.[patient.info]

  • Congenital Communicating Hydrocephalus

    Arrested hydrocephalus can occur in people who have a minor blockage in the CSF flow.[headwayabiaustralia.org] Neuroimaging evaluation in newborns can include Cranial Ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI scan.[neurosurgerydallas.com] 'Arrested' hydrocephalus is said to have occurred when the intracranial pressure (ICP) returns to normal, despite the ventricles remaining dilated.[patient.info]

  • Skull Fracture

    DISCUSSION: 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] In select patients, physicians use MRI of the brain, including special MR scanning techniques called diffusion-weighted imaging, diffusion tensor imaging and MR spectroscopy[radiologyinfo.org] 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]
