In this installment of our video blog series, Through a Mother’s Eye’s, Debby Buffa shares her daughters’ journeys with hydrocephalus. Debby’s daughters’ hydrocephalus were both caused by aqueductal stenosis and their treatments required a shunt system. This is the most common cause of congenital hydrocephalus. However, there is rare form of genetic hydrocephalus that is hereditary called X-linked hydrocephalus. X-linked hydrocephalus is caused by a mutation in the L1CAM gene. Debby also addresses the link between spina bifida and hydrocephalus. To learn more about x-linked hydrocephalus and spina bifida make sure to read the list of resources included below the video.
