Vaginal perforation caused by distal tip of ventriculoperitoneal shunt: Report of a rare complication
Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt is commonly employed in the management of hydrocephalus. Various complications such as dissection or migration may develop besides shunt malfunction. Migration may occur into the lateral ventricle mediastinum, gastrointestinal tract, abdominal wall, bladder, vagina, or scrotum. Although vaginal penetration is rare, we present a case of migration of the peritoneal catheter out of the vagina.
