We present an infant who underwent endoscopic third ventriculostomy due to symptomatic hydrocephalus secondary to aqueductal stenosis. This is the first reported case of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone complicated by hyponatriemia and seizures following endoscopic surgery. The possibility of such a neuroendoscopic complication should alert neurosurgeons and close observation of serum electrolytes is highly recommended in the acute postoperative period, particularly in infants.
