In brief: Hydrocephalus

Hydrocephalus is a situation where too much fluid has accumulated within the brain.
The treatment is based on what caused the hydrocephalus first. Treatment can include removing an obstructive lesion, placement of a shunt to divert the fluid from the brain to the abdomen among other options.

In brief: Read this monograph

I have discussed this question in detail on my own blog.
Go to http://surgeonwriter.com/hydrolog/ and download the free monograph HYDROCEPHALUS: An Owner's Manual. It's free. This is written for the lay person. It's brief, interesting, and informative. It's not encyclopedic, but it will answer most of your questions. Enough anyway, so you will know what to ask your doc. Good luck.
