In brief: Brain problem

This is a brain malformation that can be quite serious.
It involves extra fluid in the back of the brain. This fluid can cause pressure and impede the growth of the rest of the brain during development. Many babies may need surgery after birth to re-route the extra fluid to avoid further problems. Follow your mfm's advice for close monitoring.
