Cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea and intraventricular pneumocephalus occurred in an adolescent with aqueduct stenosis whose ventriculoperitoneal shunt occluded repeatedly due to a faulty on-off control. The possible mechanisms are discussed, the urgency of treatment is stressed, and the risk of pneumocephalus when a shunt is used to treat cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea is pointed out.
- Aqueduct stenosis
- Cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea
