Bilateral papilledema as the first sign of ventriculoperitoneal shunt dysfunction§.

Serna-Ojeda JC, Aguirre-Mireles M, Camargo-Suarez MF - Open Ophthalmol J (2015)

Bottom Line: A 12 year-old girl patient with a history of ventriculoperitoneal shunt placement at the age of 6 months presented with progressive bilateral decrease in visual acuity.No other systemic manifestations of increased intracranial pressure were evident and laboratory work-up excluded other inflammatory or infectious processes.We present here an interesting case of a patient with ophthalmologic manifestations as the initial finding of ventriculoperitoneal shunt dysfunction.

ABSTRACT
A 12 year-old girl patient with a history of ventriculoperitoneal shunt placement at the age of 6 months presented with progressive bilateral decrease in visual acuity. Ophthalmologic examination was consistent with bilateral papilledema. No other systemic manifestations of increased intracranial pressure were evident and laboratory work-up excluded other inflammatory or infectious processes. We present here an interesting case of a patient with ophthalmologic manifestations as the initial finding of ventriculoperitoneal shunt dysfunction.

Figure 2: Goldmann visual fields. Concentric decrease of the peripheral visual fields is shown from right eye (A) and left eye (B).

Mentions: Goldmann visual fields revealed a concentric decrease of the peripheral visual fields with a right eye 25-30 degree remaining central field on IV/E3 stimulation, and a 20-30 central field in the left eye, also on IV/E3 stimulation (Fig. 2).
