My answer:
1.Hydrocephalus particularly Non communicating Hydrocephalus.

2. Caused by blockage of CSF pathways due to dilated cerebral ventricles.

  1. Pediatric Venticulomegaly.
  2. It is often caused by hydrocephalus, a condition whereby cerebrospinal fluid(CSF) builds up within the ventricles of the brain, causing them to grow progressively larger.

1)Condition_ Non-Communicating or obstrucive hydrocephalus

2)It is caused by a blockage to the interventricular foramen(Foramen of Monro) which allows the flow of CSF from the lateral ventricle to the third ventricle thus resulting in the dilation of ventricle proximal the obstruction.
