Abstract

A case of simulated acute appendicitis caused by a ventriculoperitoneal shunt is described. This case presented as a perplexing clinical problem. When the diagnosis was established by laparotomy, it was apparent that another complication should be added to the list of abdominal complications which occurred secondary to insertion of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt.
