Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a watery fluid, continuously produced and absorbed, which flows in the ventricles (cavities) within the brain and around the surface of the brain and spinal cord. CSF is produced by the choroid plexus, a series of infolded blood vessels projecting into the cerebral ventricles, and it is absorbed into the venous system. If production exceeds absorption, the CSF pressure rises and the result is hydrocephalus (literally water on the brain) which involves expansion of the ventricles (under pressure) and destruction of brain tissue. This can also occur if the CSF pathways are obstructed and CSF accumulates.
