Hydrocephalus is excess fluid around the brain. Causes include complications of premature birth such as intraventricular hemorrhage, diseases such as meningitis, tumors, traumatic head injury, spina bifida, or subarachnoid hemorrhage, which block the drainage of cerebral spinal fluid. It may be treated by draining the fluid in the brain, which may be a lifelong process.
