Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, or NPH, is a type of hydrocephalus that affects the elderly population. Since it mimics the symptoms and signs of getting older and/or Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, it is often misdiagnosed. To better understand this condition, watch this video from the Hydrocephalus Association’s Website. Please post all questions on this blog.
