Increased intracranial pressure and the cerebrospinal fluid spaces.
Increased intracranial pressure is a frequent accompaniment to many of the disease processes affecting the brain and its coverings. Such increased pressure is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. This article briefly reviews the pathophysiology of increased intracranial pressure and addresses the clinical and neuroradiological presentation of increased pressure. As part of the discussion, the concept of hydrocephalus and its treatment and complications are addressed.
