An 11-year-old boy who underwent an initially successful endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) died 4 months later secondary to acute hydrocephalus. This is the first report of sudden death caused by delayed closure of ETV. Guidelines to patients, parents and primary caregivers should include the possibility of ETV failure and encourage early neurosurgical consultation when symptoms of raised intracranial pressure occur.
