Abstract

Background: Aim of the study was to determine the morphometric measurement of the third ventricle of brain by computed tomography in hydrocephalic children, and to assess its importance in different age groups.
Materials and Methods: The study group included CT Scans of 50 normal and 50 hydrocephalic children between 0-12 yrs attending the Department of Radiology, Niloufer hospital Hyderabad Telangana between November 2013 to August 2014 Maximum width of the third ventricle were measured and statistically analyzed.
Results: Out of 50 Hydrocephalic cases 24 (48%) were males and 26 (52%) were females, 31 were below 3 years and 19 were above 3 years. In the present study including 50 hydrocephalic children below the age of 12yrs, the mean of third ventricle width (14.08+/-5.92,95 %CI 12.91-15.24 mm) was higher than the mean of control group (3.81+/-0.46,95% CI 3.72-3.9). Mean of Third ventricle width in males (11.61+/-4.8,95 %CI 9.32-13.9mm) is less than Mean of Third ventricle width in females (14.15+/-6.6,95% CI 11.48-16.82mm).Mean of Third ventricle width in children below 3yrs (15.35+/-6.23,95%CI 13.92-16.77mm) is more than Mean of Third ventricle width in children above 3yrs (11.61+/-4.45, 95%CI 9.0-13.31mm) .
Conclusions: The study shows significant difference in width of third ventricle among cases and controls. Among the hydrocephalic children there was a significant difference in the above age groups.
