Reversible hydrocephalus caused by bilateral jugular vein catheterization

Brain & Development
X R Wu, K F Swaiman

Abstract

Communicating hydrocephalus was inadvertently induced in a neonate by bilateral jugular vein catheterization. Removal of one catheter resulted in return to normal ventricular size within 14 days. The complication of hydrocephalus from bilateral jugular vein catheterization can be reversed by prompt removal of one catheter.
