  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

In the literature, postoperative calcified epidural hematoma is not common. The authors report a case of calcified epidural hematoma after ventriculo-peritoneal shunt, and radiotherapy for pinealoma.

A 14-year-old boy was admitted to author's depart-ment on December 9, 1983, complaining of headache. He underwent a ventriculoperitoneal shunt on August 28, 1980 under the diagnosis of hydrocephalus caused by pinealoma. After the operation hydrocephalus improved. The patient had radiotherapy of 5090 rad. CT scan taken after the irradiation revealed reduction of the size of the tumor.
