Pyogenic liver abscess occurring as a complication of ventriculoperitoneal shunt is of rare occurrence. The authors report an unusual occurrence of a pyogenic liver abscess in a 10-year-old child complicating the insertion of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. It was successfully treated by intravenous antibiotics following shunt removal.
