Abstract

Although extra-axial hematomas are a well-known complication of ventricular shunting, epidural hematomas are uncommon in this setting. We report an unusual case of multiple epidural hematomas in a patient with hydrocephalus treated by ventriculoperitoneal shunt. The patient became symptomatic 5 days after shunting and required craniotomy for evacuation of one of the hematomas. The literature is reviewed and treatment discussed.
