The lower urinary tract dysfunction of the neurogenic bladder often worsens owing to dysfunction of the bladder itself. We treated a patient with spina bifida who experienced bladder dysfunction that worsened owing to an abdominal pseudocyst that developed as a complication of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. After removal of the pseudocyst, the urinary tract infection was controlled and bladder dysfunction was alleviated to a basal level.
