Hydrocephalus is a frequent sequel in infants who survive neonatal meningitis. This may be the communicating type, representing impaired absorption of cerebrospinal fluid from the subarachnoid space, or noncommunicating from obstruction of the foramina of Monro, the aqueduct of Sylvius, or the outlets of the fourth ventricle. This article reports on cases of two premature infants who developed hydrocephalus from aqueductal occlusion after surviving Candida septicemia, a complication not previously described.
