Three cas­es of “non-hyper­ten­sive” chron­ic hydro­ceph­a­lus, 2 of ­which asso­ciat­ed ­with ear­ly puber­ty and 1 ­with pri­mary ame­nor­rhea, are report­ed. Hormonal secre­tion defi­cien­cies ­were con­firmed by labor­a­to­ry inves­ti­ga­tions. Only 1 of the 3 ­patients was sur­gi­cal­ly treat­ed ­with a shunt­ing ­device.
