September is Hydrocephalus Awareness Month.
 
Hydrocephalus is a serious neurological condition characterized by the abnormal buildup of cerebrospinal fluid in the ventricles of the brain. Hydrocephalus occurs in both children and adults.
 
The causes of hydrocephalus are still not well understood. Hydrocephalus may result from inherited genetic abnormalities or developmental disorders. Other possible causes include complications of premature birth, diseases such as meningitis, tumors, traumatic head injury, or subarachnoid hemorrhage.
