 en Case Report - Subarachnoid Hemorrhage and Intracereebral Hematoma Following Lumboperitoneal Shunt for Pseudotumor Cerebri : A Rare Complication
A. Suri, P. Pandey, V.S. Mehta


Placement of lumboperitoneal (LP) shunt as a surgical treatment for benign intracranial hypertension (BIH) is generally a safe procedure, with complications like mechanical failure, overdrainage and infections. Subarachnoid hemorrhage and intracerebral hematoma were seen after lumboperitoneal shunt in a patient having BIH. These complications were the cause of the patient's deterioration. After removal of the hematoma and performing a decompressive procedure, patient's neurological condition improved. The clinical features, investigations and clinical course are described and the literature reviewed.
