My first instinct is hydrocephalus 331.5 (unless traumatic, neonatal or congenital). Is there documentation that the ventricular enlargement is due to fluid?

I think that what Julie said would be correct. Under 331.5, Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (INPH) it gives the definition: Disruption of normal cerebrospinal fluid circulation and gradual ventricular enlargement without known cause, resulting in abnormal gait, cognitive impairment and urinary incontinence.
