Abstract:Shunt malfunction represents one of the most common problem to deal with in the daily neurosurgical practice. Among the variety of possible presentations, the cyst-like dilatation of the brain around the proximal catheter is one of the most rare and misleading type. The case of a boy with a 'tumour-like' proximal shunt malfunction is described and the pertinent literature is analysed.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
