Wet, Wacky, Wobbly, and WILD: Disinhibition as an Outcome of Post-traumatic Hydrocephalus

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.
