Abstract

Tentorial herniation secondary to supratentorial mass lesions will cause aqueductal compression and raised intraventricular pressure. Under ordinary circumstances, a raised intraventricular pressure will result in the development of hydrocephalus, but, in the presence of a large supratentorial mass, it is impossible for a generalized hydrocephalus to… (More)
