Shunt malfunction represents one of the most common problem to deal with in the daily neurosurgical practice. Among the variety of possible presentations, the cyst-like dilatation of the brain around the proximal catheter is one of the most rare and misleading type. The case of a boy with a ‘tumour-like’ proximal shunt malfunction is described and the pertinent literature is analysed.

Abstract

Shunt malfunction represents one of the most common problem to deal with in the daily neurosurgical practice. Among the variety of possible presentations, the cyst-like dilatation of the brain around the proximal catheter is one of the most rare and misleading type. The case of a boy with a ‘tumour-like’ proximal shunt malfunction is described and the pertinent literature is analysed.
