Caption

Transillumination of the head of a hydrocephalic baby. Hydrocephalus is a state of imbalance in production and absorption of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF); an excessive amount of CSF accumulates under pressure within the cavities of the brain. It may be present at birth, or may be due to infection or injury. To prevent brain damage, the fluid must be drained by means of a tube (shunt) inserted through a hole in the skull. Surgery is usually successful.
