ABSTRACT
The majority of current shunting procedures involve either a ventriculoperitoneal or a ventriculoatrial placement. The ventriculoperitoneal placement have less serious associated morbidity than the atrial placement but revision of the placement is occasionally requested by complications associated with the shunting procedure. A case of ventriculoperitoneal shunt complicated by ascites and hydrothorax was reported, in which the shunting procedure was indicated for relief of hydrocephalus in an infant.
