Abstract

A 57-year-old woman with a history of ventriculoperitoneal shunt for hydrocephalus with numerous shunt placements and revisions and bilateral breast augmentation surgery 8 years ago developed headaches as well as pain and swelling in her right breast. Radionuclide cisternography was performed to assess shunt function and to evaluate for potential cerebrospinal fluid leak. Radiotracer uptake was observed within the right breast implant due to adjacent focal shunt and implant defects.
