We present a unique case of a patient presenting with the signs and symptoms of normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) and dorsal midbrain syndrome (DMS), and in whom treatment of former led to the improvement of both. DMS has often been described in the presence of increased intracranial pressure and hydrocephalus; however, according to our knowledge, this is the first report that describes a relationship between NPH and DMS.
