This article focuses on a case of giant calcified chronic subdural haematoma as a long term complication of shunted hydrocephalus. A 15 year old boy, who had undergone ventriculo peritoneal (VP) shunting for hydrocephalus at the age of 5 years, presented with a several-month history of progressive right hemiparesis, headache, and urinary incontinence for 3 weeks. Cranial computed tomography showed a high density mass with surface calcification. Preoperatively it was considered he had a chronic, calcified subdural haematoma from VP shunt overdrainage.
