The intracranial cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) increase is frequently seen in the ventricles or in the subarachnoid spaces of children. In number of cases, morphological images cant conclude if it is a passive or active dilatation. The aim of this work was to see if the CSF hydrodynamic can bring complementary information to study pediatric population with a CSF volume increase. This phase contrast MRI study shows the absence of correlation between the dynamic of the CSF and its volume in the global population. The CSF oscillations bring complementary information concerning the active aspect of the CSF dilatation.
