80 Possible Causes for Hydrocephalus, Prominent Sulci

  • Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    The duration from diagnosis to onset of hydrocephalus symptoms ranged from 0 to 52 (mean 26) months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The lesions were more prominent in the cerebellar sulci compared with in the cerebral sulci.[ajnr.org] Hydrocephalus At Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), approximately 10% of patients referred for placement of Ommaya reservoirs have or develop hydrocephalus.6[78stepshealth.us]

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    […] low pressure hydrocephalus HYDROCEPHALUS, NORMAL-PRESSURE Chronic adult hydrocephalus NPH symptomatic hydrocephalus[wikidata.org] NPH is suggested when ventricular dilation is out of proportion to the prominence of the sulci, but this is a subjective call.[docneuro.com] Normal pressure hydrocephalus is a type of hydrocephalus caused by the build-up of cerebrospinal fluid, characterized clinically by dementia, abnormal gait and urinary incontinence[symptoma.com]

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

    In the communicating hydrocephalus, there is a lack of reabsorption of CSF.[symptoma.com] CT and MRI reveal bilateral extracerebral fluid collections, prominent sulci, normal ventricles, and no evidence of compression of the brain.[thamburaj.com] Pre-contrast axial CT Sulci and gyri are very prominent due to cortical atrophy, unlike in obstructive hydrocephalus where there is effacement of sulci and gyri.[stritch.luc.edu]

  • Obstructive Hydrocephalus

    […] which case the term obstructive hydrocephalus is used.[symptoma.com] Pre-contrast axial CT Sulci and gyri are very prominent due to cortical atrophy, unlike in obstructive hydrocephalus where there is effacement of sulci and gyri.[stritch.luc.edu] Intraventricular cysts or arachnoiditis usually cause hydrocephalus in neurocysticercosis but craniocervical junction cysts causing obstructive hydrocephalus are rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sotos Syndrome

    Cranial abnormalities - such as ventricular dilatation, hydrocephalus, cerebral atrophy.[medindia.net] Other non-specific neurological abnormalities include absent corpus callosum, prominent cortical sulci, cavum septum pellucidum and cavum velum interpositi [ 17 ].[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hydrocephalus is not a significantly common feature of Sotos syndrome.[nature.com]

  • Craniosynostosis-Dandy-Walker Malformation-Hydrocephalus Syndrome

    […] malformation and hydrocephalus is a malformation disorder characterized by sagittal craniosynostosis (see this term), Dandy-Walker malformation, hydrocephalus, craniofacial[orpha.net] CT and MRI reveal bilateral extracerebral fluid collections, prominent sulci, normal ventricles, and no evidence of compression of the brain.[thamburaj.com] Sagittal craniosynostosis, Dandy-Walker malformation, and hydrocephalus: a unique multiple malformation syndrome.[unboundmedicine.com]

  • Macrocephaly

    Because hydrocephalus is diagnosed and treated at an early stage in pediatric patients, pediatric neurosurgeons rarely encounter patients with hydrocephalic macrocephaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed prominent subarachnoid cortical sulci, Sylvian fissure, and basal cisterns ( Figs 1 and 2 ).[scielo.br] Cranial computed tomography (CT) showed encephalomalacia, widening of ventricles and the sulci, and hemimegalencephaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Communicating Hydrocephalus

    […] with congenital communicating hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CT and MRI reveal bilateral extracerebral fluid collections, prominent sulci, normal ventricles, and no evidence of compression of the brain.[thamburaj.com] Pre-contrast axial CT Sulci and gyri are very prominent due to cortical atrophy, unlike in obstructive hydrocephalus where there is effacement of sulci and gyri.[stritch.luc.edu]

  • Brain Stem Herniation

    SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION LINKS Brain Stem Stroke Hydrocephalus Locked in-syndrome Symptoms of Frontal, Temporal, Parietal and Occipital Strokes Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt[thequadspot.com] The fluid space between the cortex and the calvarium appears to be increased and the sulci/gyri may appear prominent. View prominent sulci/gyri.[hawaii.edu] (and examples) lesion in superior colliculi (examples: stroke, hydrocephalus, pinealoma) Herniation syndromes - types 1.[brainscape.com]

  • Lissencephaly

    Progressive hydrocephalus (an excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain) is very rare, seen only in the subtype of Walker-Warburg syndrome, but may require[ninds.nih.gov] MR findings include migrational anomalies like lissencephaly and polymicrogyria, encephalomalacia with non-specific ventricular enlargement, prominent sulci, subependymal[doi.org] Hydrocephalus may require treatment with a VP shunt, a tube that goes from the brain through a hole placed in the skull and then under the skin all the way to the abdomen,[skylersue.com]
