Abdominal pseudocysts have been recorded infrequently as a complication of intraperitoneal shunting. Authors have experienced two cases of subphrenic pseudocyst as a complication of ventriculoperitoneal shunt, which were treated with revision of shunt. First patient had medulloblastoma with hydrocephalus. The other one was a patient who had subarachnoid hemorrhage and hydrocephalus from Struge Weber syndrome. It's diagnosis and treatment were discussed with review of literatures.
