Özet

Neurological disorders can be observed in hemodialysis patients due to uremic encephalopathy, electrolyte imbalance, infection, medications, glucose intolerance, hypoxia and psychiatric disorders. We present a case of hydrocephalus consequent to central vein thrombosis that is rarely seen in an adult hemodialysis patient and which causes neuro-psychiatric symptoms.
