GUERREIRO, Marilisa M.; FACURE, Nubor O.  and  SILVA, Ednéa A.. Multiloculated hydrocephalus: report of two cases. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1988, vol.46, n.3, pp.312-315. ISSN 0004-282X.

Multiloculated hydrocephalus is a clinicopathological entity consisting of enlarged, loculated ventricles and paraventricular poroencephalic cavities. We present two cases of multiloculated hydrocephalus: one due to infectious process of central nervous system and the other consequent to a congenital malformation. Tomographic aspects of this condition that permit the diagnosis are stressed. The pathophysiology, the management and the prognosis are discussed according to the available literature.
