Abstract

A case of peritoneal metastasis via a ventriculoperitoneal shunt 14 months following biopsy and irradiation of an intracerebral germinoma is presented. Metastatic abdominal disease has been controlled at 32 months postmetastatic diagnosis by abdominal irradiation and systemic chemotherapy. The occurrence of ventriculoperitoneal shunt metastases and control of extracranial metastases from intracerebral germinomas are discussed.
