Abstract

Although extra-axial hematoma is a well known complication in ventricular shunting, epidural hematomas(EDH) are not common in this setting. This is the report of an unusual case of acute EDH in a patient with hydrocephalus caused by pineal germinoma treated by ventriculoperitoneal(V-P) shunt and radiotherapy. The formation of acute EDH has been rarely reported as a complication of V-P shunt. We would like to share our experience with a case of acute EDH after 4 months of V-P shunt and a review of the literature is also included.
