845 Possible Causes for Dizziness, Obstructive Hydrocephalus

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Symptoms can include deafness on the affected side and dizziness with a spinning sensation (vertigo).[patient.info] Symptoms, as a result of a mass effect from the tumour or due to obstructive hydrocephalus, include morning headaches, nausea, vomiting, diplopia (a manifestation of sixth[bestpractice.bmj.com] On the left is an image of a calcified mass in the suprasellar region, causing obstructive hydrocephalus.[radiologyassistant.nl]

  • Arnold Chiari Malformation

    The typical symptoms attributed to the Arnold-Chiari Malformation are: Headache, usually occipital or suboccipital Neck Pain Vertigo / Dizziness / Light Headedness / Disequilibrium[chiro-trust.org] Variable other central nervous system abnormalities might be present (partial or complete agenesis of the corpus callosum, a small fourth ventricle, obstructive hydrocephalus[orpha.net] It may be associated with stenosis of the aqueduct of Sylvius with obstructive hydrocephalus, and atrophy of the brain tissue.[whonamedit.com]

  • Pineal Gland Cyst

    If narrowing of the aqueduct of sylvius occurs, many neurological symptoms may exist, including headaches, vertigo, nausea, eye sensitivity, and ataxia.[medhelp.org] Postmortem examination revealed a glial cyst of the pineal gland and evidence of chronic obstructive hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] I still get headaches/head pain every day, coupled with some intracranial pressure and dizziness (maybe the increased dizziness is from Topamax now, too), so I don't know[medhelp.org]

  • Cerebellar Infarction

    Each patient completed a standardised dizziness questionnaire and underwent neurotological evaluations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Computed tomography showed cerebellar infarction with obstructive hydrocephalus. External ventricular drainage was performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) was done to relieve the acute obstructive hydrocephalus. The patient was later discharged with only mild residual ataxia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertensive Encephalopathy

    […] cerebral symptoms.In the past, the term "hypertensive encephalopathy" has been applied to a range of neurological problems occurring in hypertensive patients, such as headache, dizziness[en.wikipedia.org] A review of the literature yielded 15 additional case reports describing reversible obstructive hydrocephalus related to hypertensive encephalopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] By the time he presented in the ED, his blood pressure was 209/125 mmHg with the resolution of his dizziness and he was admitted for hypertensive crisis.[cureus.com]

  • Medulloblastoma

    Four months after the meningioma surgery, the patient presented with headaches, dysarthria, and dizziness. Indirect bypass surgery was performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Medulloblastoma is a malignant embryonal tumor that arises in the cerebellum and invades the fourth ventricle, often resulting in obstructive hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 12-year-old girl presented with dizziness and nausea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
