PMID:  3131414     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Three cases with rare association of neurofibromatosis, hydrocephalus, and aqueductal stenosis seen at the University of Iowa during the past 20 years are presented. The literature on nontumoral hydrocephalus and aqueductal stenosis in neurofibromatosis is reviewed. Possible explanations for the association of aqueductal stenosis and neurofibromatosis are discussed. It is concluded that aqueductal stenosis, though not common, should nevertheless be considered in the differential diagnosis of hydrocephalus in neurofibromatosis.
