Unusual Complication of Abdominal Pseudocyst Following Cystoperitoneal Shunt in Posterior Cranial Fossa Arrachnoid Cyst
Keywords:abdominal pseudocyst, cystoperitonal shunt, atrioventricular shunt
Abdominal pseudocyst is a rare complication reported of VP shunt surgery. Here, we report a 10-monthsold
boy with abdominal distension following cystoperitoneal (CP) shunt procedure for the fossa posterior
arrachnoid cyst. The diagnosis was based on the clinical symptoms and abdominal USG. Infection and
allergic reaction was considered as the underlying cause. The CP shunt was removed to atrioventricular
shunt and it resulted in a good response. Abdominal pseudocyst should be considered whenever there is
abdominal distension following VP/CP shunt.
