Delayed intracerebral and subdural hematomas after ventriculo-peritoneal shunt in a child: A case report and review of the literature



Delayed intracerebral and subdural hematomas after ventriculo-peritoneal shunt in a child: A case report and review of the literature



Neuro-Chirurgie 62(2): 105-107



Ventriculo-peritoneal shunt (VPS) continues to remain the main diverted method to drain the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from the ventricles to the peritoneal cavity. It has some complications that must be managed promptly to avoid any eventual fatal evolution. The association of delayed intracerebral and subdural hematomas after VPS insertion is a very rare complication and has, to our knowledge, never previously been reported in the literature. We report a very uncommon association of this entity occurring 11months after a shunt placement in a 13-year-old boy and discuss the likely pathogenesis, as well as the clinical and the radiological data.
