A case of malignant astrocytoma arising from hypoth alamic resion with tumor dissemination to abdominal cavity led to ascites was reported.
The patient was a 6-year-old girl with suffering from headache, nausea and visual disturbance. Because of increased intracranial pressure, V-P shunt operation was performed, and approximately 8 months after shunt operation ascites with cytological malignant cells appeared, and finally expired.
Very rare case for peritoneal cytology was discussed from the point of differential diagnosis as an unexpected case to be ruled out.
