Abstract

Spontaneous ventriculostomy (SV) is a rare condition where there is a spontaneous communication between the ventricle and the subarachnoid space as a result of hydrocephalus. Only four cases of SV through the floor of the third ventricle have been previously reported. Two further cases are presented and the literature reviewed.
