ABSTRACT: Pseudocyst formation is a rare complication of ventriculoperitoneal shunt. Two cases are being reported who presented with abdominal symptoms following ventriculoperitoneal shunt. The shunt was functioning in one case and partially blocked in the other. The diagnosis was made with the help of ultrasound. Both the cases were operated and the complete cyst was excised in both cases. The distal end of the shunt catheter was repositioned in the suprahepatic space. Both cases are doing well in 6 monthsand 9 months follow up respectively.
