Abstract

is an extremely rare pathogen responsible for ventriculoperitoneal shunt infection and meningitis. This young female patient with history of multiple shunt revisions in the past, came to us with shunt dysfunction and exposure of the ventriculoperitoneal shunt tube in the neck. The abdominal end of the shunt tube was seen migrating into the bowel during shunt revision. The cerebrospinal fluid analysis showed evidence of growth. This is the first reported case of meningitis associated with ventriculoperitoneal shunt migration into the bowel.
