Why does Hydrocephalus happen?

There are many reasons that hydrocephalus might occur. Often it is secondary to another condition that has affected the brain or the central nervous system.

Many of these conditions have their own symptoms and complications that can have an effect on someone’s life. Some of these effects may be physical but some conditions can also have an impact on how the brain works. They too can change the way a person thinks and acts (behaves) even when hydrocephalus does not occur.

Hydrocephalus is however an ongoing, lifelong condition. It can continue to make it difficult for the brain to work properly.

Everyday difficulties can be caused by how hydrocephalus changes the way the brain works.
