Adult hydrocephalus is an insidious yet treatable condition that develops slowly, with usual onset around 60 years of age. It is poorly recognized and many cases are not diagnosed until late in the course of disease, leading to poorer patient outcomes and a high financial cost to healthcare providers. The resulting neurological symptoms include gait/balance problems, loss of bladder control, and a cognitive decline leading to dementia, which is often mistaken for Alzheimer's disease.
