Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

About This Condition

Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) is a condition where there is an abnormal build-up of fluid in the ventricles of the brain but without increased cranial pressure. There are two forms of the condition - idiopathic NPH which mostly affects adults over 60 years and secondary NPH which can affect adults of any age. In some cases, it may result from injury, infection or surgery; however, the cause is often not known.

We have recently established the NPH Centre of Excellence to help with the diagnosis and treatment of this condition. Find out more here.
