Migration of ventriculo-peritoneal shunt into the subdural space is a reported but rare complication. We report a case of migration and coiling of both ends of the shunt into the subdural space. We also hypothesize that coiling of the shunt tube during packaging predisposes to elastic recoil and tendency of such migration.
