Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus Causes
NPH can occur after head injury, bleeding around the brain (due to a blow to the head), stroke, meningitis (infection of a protective layer of tissue around the brain), or brain tumor. It can happen after surgery on the brain. How these conditions lead to NPH is not clear.
In most cases, the cause is never known.
