Thank you for helping us raise funds by hiking for Hydrocephalus!
Hydrocephalus, also called "water on the brain" is a condition in which there is an abnormal build up of CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) in the cavities (ventricles) of the brain. The buildup is often caused by an obstruction which prevents proper fluid drainage. The fluid buildup can raise intracranial pressure inside the skull which compresses surrounding brain tissue, causing progressive enlargement of the head in infants, and convulsions, vision impairment, learning disabilities, and brain damage in infants to elderly. Hydrocephalus can be fatal if left untreated.
