Romania: Children with Hydrocephalus

In Romania, each year more than 600 children will be diagnosed with hydrocephalus (HWKR), known to us, born as hydrocephalus. This state is caused by the accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid, which can not flow. Thus, the children suffer irreversible brain damage.
