  • Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) usually affects people age 60 and over.
  • An estimated 375,000 Americans suffer from NPH
  • NPH can be difficult to diagnose because its symptoms may be confused with other disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease
  • NPH is believed to cause up to 5 percent of all cases of dementia
  • If diagnosed early, NPH can be effectively treated

If you know someone who may be suffering from NPH tell them to seek out an NPH specialist and schedule a screening.
