About Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, also known as nph - [normal pressure hydrocephalus], is related to hydrocephalus and dementia. An important gene associated with Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus is CFAP43 (Cilia And Flagella Associated Protein 43), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Neuroscience and Alzheimers Disease Pathway. The drugs Acetazolamide and Flutemetamol have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include spinal cord, brain and pituitary, and related phenotypes are nervous system and behavior/neurological
