Hydrocephalus is a disorder triggered by physical or functional block of Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) flow that leads to progressive ventricular dilatation. Therefore, hydrocephalus has multiple competing classification systems. Congenital forms of hydrocephalus are complicated, both anatomically and mechanically which makes the prenatal diagnosis of the etiology a challenging task to approach as a clinician. Here, we review a case report about a stenosis of the aqueduct of Sylvius causing infantile hydrocephalus and we describe the major role of Ultrasound and MRI and their interests as being precocious methods of screening.
