Abstract

Figure 1. Endoscopic Laser Third Ventriculostomy. A 37-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital because she had had headaches for two years.

Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain (Panel A) showed noncommunicating hydrocephalus due to stenosis of the caudal aqueduct of Sylvius (open arrow), with enlargement of the third ventricle and attenuation of its floor (solid arrow).
