Subsequently an unusual liver abscess developed at right lobe of liver which was drained successfully through the percutaneous puncture method. The liver abscess and ventriculitis was controlled with systemic, intrathecal and intraventricular antibiotics administrations. The authors have never seen a report of liver abscess after the ventriculoperitoneal shunt. The computed tomographic findings, managements of infection and a review of the literature is presented.
