Abstract

The authors evaluated 89 infants who had had computed tomography of the head and who were followed-up for a minimum of one year. In a large proportion with moderate ventriculomegaly spontaneous stabilization or regression occurred, with normal developmental outcome in a high percentage of cases. However, there was a statistically significant trend toward developmental scores as ventricular size increased. Many infants with ventricular enlargement will not develop progressive hydrocephalus, but their cognitive and psychomotor development may be affected.
