The response of cerebrospinal fluid (CFS) pressure to increased arterial carbon dioxide tension (PCO2) was evaluated in 5 control animals and 7 animals with experimentally induced communicating hydrocephalus. The CSF pressure in control dogs increased moderately in response to PCO2; in dogs with hydrocephalus, an increase in PCO2 produced a pronounced increase in CSF pressure accompanied by a simultaneous decrease in cerebral perfusion pressure. Progression of hydrocephalus can be explained by increased intracranial pressure, periventricular edema and cerebral ischemia.
