Hydrocephalic woman with cerebrospinal fluid shunts are now surviving to reproductive age. Both maternal intra-abdominal pressure and intracranial cerebrospinal fluid increase cause maternal and fetal complications due to cerebrospinal shunt. Therefore
gestation period must be followed carefully with brain surgery department. Any shunt unfunction must be diagnosed promptly and solved at on time. There is no enough literature about pregnancies in women with previously placed ventricular shunts for obstructive hydrocephalus.
Since there are doubts regarding the mode of delivery, analgesia and anesthesia. We present a case of labor in the 21 year-old woman with hydrocephalus and a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. It is considered that delivery mode of pregnant women with ventriculoperitoneal shunt without
any neurological problems is to allow progress naturally and interventions limited to obstetrical reasons alone.
