Abstract

Sixty‐two infants and children were examined during the first 12 months in which computer assisted tomography was available at the Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, and our early local experience is presented. All ten tumours were correctly diagnosed. Diagnostic features are discussed. Seventeen cases showed ventricular dilatation. The difficulties in assessment of marginal hydrocephalus and in differentiation of communicating from non‐communicating hydrocephalus are outlined. Less commonly encountered lesions and their diagnostic features are enumerated.
