Abstract

GARCIA A, Karen  and  CARVAJAL C, Jorge. HIDROCEFALIA UNILATERAL: CASO CLÍNICO Y REVISIÓN DE LA LITERATURA. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2010, vol.75, n.4, pp.260-265. ISSN 0048-766X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262010000400009.

Congenital unilateral hydrocephalus is an extremely rare malformation (1 per 1,411 pregnancies), rarely detected in the prenatal period. It is considered a different entity than bilateral hydrocephalus, in terms of morbidity, mortality and perinatal outcome. Unilateral hydrocephalus has a high survival rate and favorable neurological outcome when dilatation is mild, stable over time and when not associated with other malformations. Prenatal diagnosis is performed by ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging and confirmed at birth with ultrasound, CT sean or MRI. Not currently standard guidelines are available for management and long-term monitoring. We present a case report of antenatal diagnosis of congenital unilateral hydrocephalus and literature review.

Keywords : Unilateral hydrocephalus; neurological outcome.
