BACKGROUND: Acute hydrocephalus (ventricular enlargement within 72 hours) is a common complication in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) secretion may be increased in the early phases of SAH, but it has not been proved definitively. We studied the histologic features of choroid plexus (CP) in the early and late phases of SAH.
