PMID:  2013516     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A patient with arterial hypertension and a history of cerebrovascular accidents presented with communicating normal-pressure hydrocephalus. Two weeks after ventriculo-peritoneal CSF shunt he had a fatal intracerebral hemorrhage. Delayed intracerebral hemorrhage is an extremely rare complication of ventricular CSF shunting, the possible mechanisms of which are briefly discussed.
