Hydrocephalus Birth Injury Cases

Representation from an Iowa Birth Injury Lawyer

Hydrocephalus is the most common type of birth injury there is, affecting 1 in 500 births. Because of delayed diagnosis by medical personnel, especially damaging effects of hydrocephalus can occur. If your child has suffered brain damage due to improper diagnosis by your treating doctor or another medical professional, it is crucial that you contact an Iowa medical malpractice attorney to assist you with preparing a strong and aggressive case.

Hydrocephalus is a condition which is a buildup of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) on the part of the brain that controls the central nervous system. Due to this fluid buildup, a blockage is created, causing the brain to swell and the head and face to expand. This pressure inside the brain can lead to permanent brain damage. CSF fluid is supposed to flow freely throughout the brain and spinal column. When the CSF does not circulate and excessive buildup in the brain occurs, this can put pressure on the brain, pushing it against the skull and damaging vital brain tissue.
