Girls head swells due to hydrocephalus…

A family is heartbroken over their ailing daughter, who suffers from hydrocephalus, a condition that has caused her head to swell to a shocking and painful size.

Dilla Anargia Adilla, 3, of Bogor, Indonesia was born with the ailment, caused by the abnormal build-up of cerebrospinal fluid in certain parts of the brain.

Hydrocephalus, also known as “water on the brain,” causes pressure to build up inside the skull, resulting in blurred vision, mental and physical disability.

The condition is not uncommon.  [If caught early surgery can treat the condition.  I’d say, sadly, it isn’t early anymore for Dilla at this point… as you see below.]

    After further research on indiegogo, brian steele, this posting appears to be 'unverifiable'. Can somebody please share any information on this story?
