We reported the case of an elderly child who was admitted to the neurosurgery department of the CHU-HJRA for headaches and vomiting. It is a child with obstructive hydrocephalus of tumor origin to whom a shunt ventriculoperitoneal has been placed. He had secondary a hydrocephalus by obstruction of the ventricular catheter secondary to a membrane causing dysfunction of the shunt system discovered during endoscopic surgery.
