Pseudomyopia in a patient with blocked ventriculo-peritoneal shunt--a case report



Pseudomyopia in a patient with blocked ventriculo-peritoneal shunt--a case report



Annals of the Academy of Medicine Singapore 26(2): 229-231



Accommodative spasm usually encompasses a classical triad of pseudomyopia, esodeviation and pupillary constriction. Accommodative spasm is most often psychogenic in nature; however, it may be associated with other organic diseases of which a rare cause is that of intracranial catheter complications. We report a case of dorsal midbrain syndrome with pseudomyopia in a patient with a blocked ventriculo-peritoneal shunt inserted for aqueductal stenosis. Clinical presentation was unusual in this patient as pseudomyopia occurred with exodeviation and without pupillary constriction.
