AbstractSubdural collections or hematomas are frequently observed after shunt placement [7-9, 13], but rarely after ETV . A review of literature revealed 7 cases [1, 5, 6, 10, 12], of which only 1 was symptomatic . We will discuss the causes, management, and methods of prevention of this complication and we will present a case of symptomatic subdural haematoma, following endoscopic third ventriculostomy for illustration.
