A higroma-ventricle-peritoneal shunt solved the symptoms of the patient.


Neurosurgery, 34pp. Clinical, radiological features and surgical considera-tions. Brain death was diagnosed after 48 hours. The CT scan shows a hemispheric cerebellar infarction with important mass effect and hydrocephalus. The type of surgery was drainage of the lateral ventricle in four cases, ventricular-peritoneal cerwbeloso in one case and descompressive sub-occipital craniotomy one of these needed ventricular-peritoneal derivation in three cases.

Up to date six cases of symptomatic subdural hygromas in adults have been reported by different authors 1,2,4,5all of them secondary to posterior fossa decompression. After the improvement, she started worsening again, and a ventricular catheter was implanted in the biggest hygroma of posterior cranial fossa and connected to the shunt with a Y-shape connector. After the cerebellar infarction and the subsequent decompressive craniectomy a disruption in the CSF dynamics occurred with liquid getting out of the fourth ventricle into the subdural space and with a flap-valve effect.
