Author: Wey-Vieira, M

Lopes, VLGS
Abstract: The aim of this study was to characterize the possibility of genetic etiology in a group of individuals with congenital hydrocephalus in which the etiology was indeterminate and to confirm that earlier diagnosed. The casuistry was composed by 16 individuals with congenital hydrocephalus. Investigation protocol included anamnesis, familial investigation, physical examination, computerized tomography or magnetic resonance image of head, vertebral column X-ray, karyotype and dysmorphological study. Results were analyzed in two groups. In Group I (3M:9F) was composed by hydrocephalus associated with unspecific signs. Group II (7 males) had findings of epectrum of L1 disease. Genetic counseling could be offered in 11 cases. These results demonstrate the great etiological heterogeneity of congenital hydrocephalus and reinforce the importance of dysmphology evaluation as an important complementary investigation.
