Abstract

We determined the feasibility and value of studying intracranial CSF flow in children with potential CSF pathway problems using a cardiac gated cine magnetic resonance (MR) format. We studied 15 consecutive patients with a variety of clinical problems that suggested possible CSF pathway problems. The diagnoses included Chiari malformation, Dandy-Walker syndrome, external hydrocephalus, cerebellar tumor, CNS histoplasmosis, and tuberculous meningitis. In addition to documenting the feasibility of the technique in children (7 of 15 were less than 2 years of age), we derived significant new information relative to pathogenesis and/or therapy. The study provides preliminary evidence supporting intracranial CSF flow studies at the time of routine MR imaging of appropriate children.
