A Rare Case of Bobble-Head Doll Syndrome

Dr. Sunil Patel, Chief of Neurosurgery at the Medical University of South Carolina, discusses a rare case of Bobble-Head Doll Syndrome. Characterized by a "yes-yes" head bob, the syndrome is often associated with cystic abnormalities in the third ventricle that produce hydrocephalus. Opting against the traditional craniotomy, Dr. Patel drained the cyst endoscopically—a 15-minute procedure requiring an incision only an inch long. MUSC specializes in minimally invasive endoscopic neurosurgery.
