Özet

Obstruction at the foramen of Monro resulting in unilateral hydrocephalus is an uncommon entity that may be caused by a wide range of lesions including tumors, vascular malformations, and inflammatory conditions. A case of unilateral hydrocephalus secondary to congenital atresia of the foramen of Monro treated with stereotactic fenestration of the septum pellucidum is presented.
