Ventriculo-peritoneal (VP) shunting used in the treatment for hydrocephalus is associated with several complications. Bowel perforation is an unusual, but serious complication of VP shunting. We report the case of a 9-month-old girl who presented with transanal protrusion of VP shunt catheter. The shunt catheter was removed and a fresh VP shunt was inserted on the opposite side. Presently, the child is doing well on follow-up.
