Post hemorrhagic ventricular dilatation is a known complication of preterm neonates with intraventricular hemorrhage. For temporary management of rapidly progressing post hemorrhagic ventricular dilatation many interventions are available. All these need skill for instituting, moreover they are costly and the rate of fluid to be drained cannot be controlled. We present a simple cost effective method of controlled drainage of CSF in a preterm with rapidly progressing ventricular dilatation following hemorrhage, who was later treated with ventriculoperitoneal shunt
