Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) is a syndrome characterized by gait disturbance, dementia, and/or urinary incontinence without known causative disorders, and ventricular enlargement due to disturbed CSF circulation. The diagnosis of iNPH in the elderly remains a substantial issue, and the treatment is not always adequately provided. Since the clinical guidelines were published, iNPH has been increasingly reappraised. This paper reviews clinical aspects of iNPH, including epidemiology, clinical features, neuroimaging features, and treatment of it.
