Carriers are unaffected individuals who carry one copy of a gene for a disease that requires two copies for the disease to be expressed. Thus, children of parents who have no symptoms can still have CF, but only if both parents contribute the abnormal gene to their baby.

Most forms of hydrocephalus require surgical treatment. If a definable mass is causing the obstruction of CF flow, it may be possible to remove the mass and allow for normal flow and resolution of the hydrocephalus.
