RESUMO

Hidrocefalia multiloculada é conceituada como quadro clínico-patológico que consiste de ventrículos aumentados e loculados e de cavidades porencefálicas paraventriculares. Apresentamos dois casos de hidrocefalia multiloculada, um provavelmente conseqüente a processo infeccioso do sistema nervoso central e outro em decorrência de malformação congênita. Aspectos tomográficos compatíveis ao diagnóstico são ressaltados. A etiopatogenia, o tratamento e o prognóstico são discutidos em face da literatura compulsada.


SUMMARY

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.
