dc.description.abstract The objective of this thesis is to estimate the ultrasound pattern of hydrocephalus in sudanese neonates (1-40 days) of age. The data had been collected from 50 neonates in Khartoum province in both sexes, specifically from Al-Sha’ab Hospital; Neurosurgical Department; outpatient section and Ja’afar Ibn Aouf Specialized Pediatric Hospital and Sudan University of Science and Technology; Faculty of Radiology; Ultrasound Department. The scanning was conducted by ultrasound machines with 7.5MHz linear probe. The percentage of patients with the communicating pattern (68%) of hydrocephalus exceeded that of the non-communicating pattern (32%). The percentage of idiopathic hydrocephalus was 12%. The percentage of patients with acquired hydrocephalus is 44% and of the congenital 56%. The data was represented in frequency tables. Patients with hydrocephalus were identified in our prospectively collected database to determine the following: age, sex, past medical history; pattern of hydrocephalus (communicating or non-communicating, congenital or acquired and so on). en_US
