Healthbytes - Normal pressure hydrocephalus: A treatable form of dementia

Normal pressure hydrocephalus was first described in 1965. It’s important because it may cause one of the few forms of treatable dementia. As originally described, the hydrocephalus of NPH was considered to be unknown. However, there are some cases of predisposing conditions that can cause secondary hydrocephalus: brain hemorrhage, trauma, meningitis and sometimes following brain surgery.
