  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A term of 'disproportionately large, communicatingfourth ventricle' (DLCFV) was first proposed by inHarwood-Nash in 1980.

It is somewhat different from the well known clini-cal entity of 'isolated or trapped fourth ventricle',because of apparent patency of aqueductal canal.Two cases of typical DLCFV encountered in ourclinic were described. First patient was a 24 yearold man in whom this condition developed followingoperations for lumber disc and second patient was 22year old woman in whom the disease developed aftersubarachnoid hemorrhage.
