photos - various neuro problems

With hydrocephalus, children's heads grow at different paces depending on the blockage in the brain. This baby has a quickly developing hydrocephalus. In general his entire head is growing larger.

This baby's head is growing larger in an upwards direction.

The bulge at the back of this baby's head is an encephalocele. This baby will have to go to the United States to get this removed.


Hydrocephalus frequently is accompanied by spina bifida. The bulge on this baby's back is called this name.

This boy has a small bulge at the top of his head. I don't know what causes this.

Regarding the Spina Bifida baby... is this baby going to be able to get a medical Visa to come and get the care he needs?
