Description Hydrocephalus is an abnormal accumulation of cere-brospinal fluid (CSF) within the cerebral ventricles. It maybe divided into disorders that are viewed as either hydro-dynamic or hydrostatic. A hydrodynamic disorder is one in which abnormalities in the movement of the CSF are considered pathologic, and hydrostatic disorders are those where the CSF is considered to be at rest, but not necessarily without producing pathologic effects, most typically secondary to raised pressure.
