Lumbopritoneal shunt (L-P shunt) has been widely accepted as a treatment for communicating hydrocephalus. The technique offers many advantages such as easy insertion, a low infection rate, a reduced incidence of brain damage, et centera. Despite these advantages, there are also some associated complications, such as tonsillar herniation. This complication rarely occurs, but, when it does, it develops gradually. This report concerns an eight-year-old girl, who had received L-P shunt at the age of 20 days; she then developed tonsillar herniation, requiring operative decompression, eight years later. This case illustrates the necessity for carefully follow up patients who have undergone the L-P shunt procedure.
