Epidemiology and Demographics

Hydrocephalus affects one in every 500 live births, making it one of the most common birth defects, more common than Down syndrome or deafness. There are an estimated 700,000 children and adults living with hydrocephalus, and it is the leading cause of brain surgery for children in the United States.
