Abstract

OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Some patients with hydrocephalus may exhibit various signs of oculomotor dysfunction. However, ptosis has not previously been described in chronic hydrocephalus patients. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: We report a 50-year-old woman who was diagnosed with chronic hydrocephalus based on an evaluation for bilateral ptosis after aminor head injury. She exhibited bilateral ptosis and upward gaze paralysis, but other oculomotor functions were normal. Neuroimages revealed chronichydrocephalus with no traumatic abnormalities. INTERVENTION: The eyelid dysfunction resolved after placement of a right ventriculoperitoneal shunt with a programmable pressure valve. CONCLUSION: The resolution of eyelid dysfunction by cerebrospinal fluid diversion suggests that chronic hydrocephalus was involved in the developmentof ptosis after the minor head injury. A mild but sudden cerebrospinal fluid pressure change at the time of minor head injury might induce functionalimpairment at the level of vulnerable periaqueductal structures, which barely withstood the longstanding ventriculomegaly, resulting in the clinical features observed in our patient.
