What is Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH)?
Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus is a rare neurological condition caused by the build up of excess amounts of cerebrospinal fluid in the ventricles or cavities of the brain. This causes the surrounding brain tissues to be damaged.
Symptoms include difficulty walking, memory loss and inability to control urination.
Brain changes can sometimes be corrected with surgical installation of a shunt in the brain to drain excess fluid.
