Congenital aqueductal diaphragm


Aqueductal pathology are common causes of obstructive non communicating hydrocephalus characterized by supratentorial ventricular dilatation and normal size 4th ventricle. Note the lack of transependymal spread of CSF, indicating a more insidious / chronic nature of the hydrocephalus. Aqueductal stenosis is the commonest pathology while diaphragm/web are rare. Treatment was done by endoscopy.
