Post-traumatic hydrocephalus (PTH) or secondary normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) are common complications that follow traumatic brain injury (TBI). PTH clinical features are similar to NPH and can be characterized by a triad of gait apraxia, cognitive deficits, and urinary incontinence. Symptoms may progress to psychomotor slowing, dementia, and the need for institutionalized care. Additionally, patients with TBI often experience a loss of impulse control, aggressive behaviors, and personality changes.

The purpose of this work was to finalize the biological diagnosis of patients with FVIII activity deficiency in Abidjan, in order to guide the best type of management.Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional descriptive study from June 2018 to April 2019. Forty-nine patients, all of whom had lower FVIII levels or had been referred for b...
