A patient contaminated by human immunodeficiency infection type 2, created shunt-responsive, ordinary weight hydrocephalus. No other optional reason including pioneering contaminations, subarachnoid discharge or injury was distinguished, underscoring the conceivable connection between ordinary weight hydrocephalus and disease by human immunodeficiency infection type 2. Supposedly, no human immunodeficiency infection type 2 patient with typical weight hydrocephalus has been accounted for in the writing. This report intends to expand the range of human immunodeficiency infection type 2 related neurological difficulties.   To decide the recurrence of hydrocephalus, it's causes and treatment results in pediatric patients visiting Pediatric center in Tertiary Care Hospitals of Karachi, Pakistan Aims: The points of the examination was to indicate the normal reasons for hydrocephalus and the treatment results in the pediatric populace of Karachi and to decide the intercessions required to diminish the rate of hydrocephalus. Presentation: Hydrocephalus is a condition that happens when liquid collects in the skull and makes the cerebrum swell. Cerebrum harm can happen subsequently. This can prompt formative, physical, and scholarly hindrances. Cerebrospinal liquid (CSF) moves through the mind and spinal string in ordinary conditions. Under specific conditions, the measure of CSF in the mind builds, similar to block in ventricles, expanded CSF creation or deficient CSF seepage. Now and again, hydrocephalus begins before an infant is conceived, Congenital Hydrocephalus. This can result from a birth imperfection, in which the spinal segment doesn't close, hereditary variation from the norm or certain diseases mother influenced during pregnancy, for example, rubella. This condition can likewise happen in newborn children and little children, called Acquired Hydrocephalus, because of CNS contaminations, for example, meningitis; Bleeding in the mind during or not long after conveyance, particularly in babies conceived prematurely; Injuries that happen previously, during, or after delivery; Injury or head injury and CNS tumors. It expects treatment to forestall genuine intricacies, regardless of whether shunt inclusion or ventriculostomy. Procedure: This cross‐sectional study was directed from February 2015 ‐ February 2016. Pediatric patients under 2 years old were enrolled in this examination. A history and assessment structure planned from an application "Structures", especially for the investigation and was filled by concerned specialists. For information investigation SPSS 16.0 programming was utilized. Incorporation standards: Pediatric patients old enough ≤ 2 years paying little mind to sexual orientation introducing to pediatric center of tertiary consideration emergency clinics of Karachi with chief gripe of Hydrocephalus were incorporated. Rejection measures: Patients who were having immune system issue and furthermore resistant bargained patients were prohibited from the examination. Results: Total 73 patients were examined, out of which 32.88% were male and 67.12% were females. When asked about the explanation of hydrocephalus, 54.79% were because of hindrance of ventricles, 27.40% because of lacking waste of CSF and 17.81% because of expanded CSF creation. Out of 73 patients, 73.97% were the instances of inherent hydrocephalus and 26.03% were of Acquired hydrocephalus. Among these, 32 have birth surrenders, 13 have hereditary anomaly, 10 newborn child's moms were contaminated with rubella, 9 have meningitis, 3 were rashly conveyed, 3 have injury to cerebrum and 3 have CNS tumor. 93.15% were treated by shunt addition and 6.85% by ventriculostomy. The results of treatment by shunt addition were not awesome as there were 26 shunt disappointments. End: Most of the cases were of inherent hydrocephalus. The visualization for newborn children and youngsters with hydrocephalus relies upon different variables, including the reason for the hydrocephalus. With early identification and treatment, the anticipation turns out to be better, however a few kids experienced genuine complexities regardless of the sufficient treatment was given.
