Failure to Diagnose Hydrocephalus is a Real Risk For Your Baby in The Bronx, New York

Diagnose Hydrocephalus

Hydrocephalus, also known as “water on the brain”, is a condition that occurs when there is an excess of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). This fluid surrounds the brain and spinal cord in the human body and when in excess, it can cause spaces in between the brain, called ventricles, to enlarge. This can cause undue and dangerous pressure on brain tissues, and may even result in destroying them completely. Excessive pressure on the brain tissues must be taken very seriously because it can lead to multiple health problems and if left, unattended, may even cause death. Hydrocephalus can be acquired (from a disease or head injury after birth) or be congenital (present at birth). Congenital hydrocephalus can be caused by a number of events that affect fetal development. It may also be the result of a genetic defect. Failure to diagnose this condition by Bronx, New York physicians may clearly be a case of medical negligence.
