 NPH can affect one’s ability to function mentally and socially in addition to the physical limitations it carries.  These changes can occur suddenly or slowly over time therefore giving way to delayed diagnosis and treatment.

For some of the challenges that may occur with hydrocephalus, and suggestions on how to proactively manage them, we have created Fact Sheets.
