Hi doctor,

My earlier ultrasound mentioned big head. But, my present ultrasound done in 36 weeks says big head with mild prominence of bilateral lateral ventricles. My radiosonologist did confirm big head but on part of hydrocephalus she was not sure. I have attached the report for your feedback.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have checked the attachment (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • There is prominence of the ventricular system of the brain, if it is beyond certain dimensions then we call it hydrocephalus.
  • This dilatation can sometimes be a normal variant, but things are better known after MRI of brain once baby is born. So, let us wait for the baby to be born.

Investigations to be done:

MRI brain.
