Image of hydrocephalus in the brain from a male F344/N rat in a chronic study
An example of bilateral noncommunicating, obstructive hydrocephalus of the lateral ventricles (arrows) in a male F344/N rat from a chronic study. It is secondary to a pituitary neoplasm (arrowhead) compressing and distorting the diencephalon while obstructing the ventral aspect of the third ventricle.
