Isolated lateral ventricle after ventriculoperitoneal shunt for hydrocephalus can occur by obstruction of foramen of Monro. Two cases of isolated lateral ventricles after ventriculoperitoneal shunt are reported. Patients showed neurological deterioration and brain CT scan revealed unilateral dilatation of lateral ventricle after ventriculoperitoneal shunt. They were successfully managed by another shunt system into dilated lateral ventricle.
