Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH)



Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is an excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the ventricles of the brain. The ventricles are a system of large, fluid-filled open spaces inside the brain. Too much CSF in the ventricales can distort the brain’s shape and can make the brain susceptible to injury.
