The prenatal and natal history were normal. At birth the head circumference was 34.0 cm. When the child was admitted to the hospital, the head circumference was 52.2 cm, bulging fontanelle and setting sun phenomenon. Echoencephalography revealed symmetrical enlargement of both lateral ventricles without shift of midline echo and his frontal mantel was 2 cm.
