Özet

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Lumboperitoneal (LP) shunting is an effective treatment modality for commmunicating hydrocephalus, pseudotumor cerebri, postoperative pseudomeningoceles, and cerebrospinal fluid fistulas. However, LP shunts are associated with some complications. Here, we report an extreme complication resulting in the formation of granulation tissue.
