Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH)

Anyone have NPH? I was diagnosed with it at age 27, and shunted. Now at age 50, I have had my 12th shunt revision. Just wanting to know how "uncommon" this is in a young adult. It was caused by an inoperable AVM in my brain stem.

  • HMM - I work for a Neurologist, and only remember seeing this dx a couple times - but I don't work in the office either. Just a biller, so I'm not totally sure.
