Hydrocephalus is a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid CSF builds up within the ventricles fluid-containing cavities of the brain and may increase pressure within the head.

Advances and Technical Standards in Neurosurgery pp Cite as. During the past ten years, adult hydrocephalus has been the subject of extensive work, mainly due to a better understanding of CSF hydrodynamics. At the same time, the description of neurological disorders associated with hydrocephalus and normal CSF pressure, curable by a CSF shunt, has renewed the interest in therapeutics.

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia CAH describes a group of autosomal recessive disorders resulting from a deficiency in one of the enzymes involved in adrenal steroid synthesis. Impaired cortisol synthesis leads to chronic elevations of ACTH and overstimulation of the adrenal cortex resulting in a hyperplastic gland. Impaired enzyme function at each step of adrenal cortisol biosynthesis leads to a unique combination of retained precursors and deficient products. Clinical presentation of steroid 21 OHD CAH can vary from mild cases presenting with hyperandrogenic symptoms in adolescence to severe cases presenting with adrenal crisis in the newborn period.
