ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt Failure secondary to tubing disconnection.

History: 17 year-old-male with new onset headaches and a history of a VP shunt.

Findings: Axial T2 MRI from 3 months prior to presentation demonstrating baseline lateral ventricular size. Lateral radiograph of the skull on presentation (as part of a VP shunt evaluation series) demonstrating a disconnection at a branch point of the shunt system external to the skull at the right temporal region. Non-contrast CT of the head demonstrating enlarged lateral ventricles. Post shunt revision non-contrast CT of the head demonstrating mild decrease in the size of the lateral ventricle as well as the post revision head CT scout image demonstrating shunt disconnection repair.

Ddx: Shunt disconnection--diagnostic images.

Dxhow: Pre and post shunt revision imaging.

Exam: N/A

No MeSH data available.
