Abstract

We report a case of complete extracranial displacement of the proximal part of a ventriculo-peritoneal shunt following trauma. The possible mechanism of the delayed displacement of the shunt is discussed. The importance of early recognition of this unusual cause of shunt dysfunction is considered.
