Figure 2: Suspected hydrocephalus
Case history and photo
A photo shown below is of a young rat under 3 months of age. Frasier was born with an enlarged head and was suspected of having a form of hydrocephalus. He came from a group of rescue babies. Two of the babies within this litter of rescues also had enlarged heads. Fraser’s brother lived longer than he did, but still not to a ripe old age. Unfortunately a complete diagnosis was not able to be obtained . Fraser was born 5-23-97 and died 8-5-97. A very short life.
