When Hydrocephalus Is Not Properly Treated …
In babies, hydrocephalus (water on the brain) is usually genetic in origin. (The "water" is actually cerebrospinal fluid — CSF.) It is the doctor's responsibility to recognize the symptoms and treat the condition as soon as possible. In some cases, birth trauma may cause hydrocephalus.
