Hy­dro­cephalus is a build-up of fluid on the brain. The pres­sure can cause brain dam­age and, if un­treated, it can be fa­tal. Un­der­stand­ing of its causes is still lim­ited, but ba­bies may be born with it, it may be caused at any age by head in­jury, or hap­pen for no ap­par­ent rea­son. Com­mon symp­toms in­clude headaches, vom­it­ing and blurred vi­sion. Visit shinechar­ity.org.uk/ hy­dro­cephalus for info.
