INTRODUCTION: Pneumocephalus is a rare complication of continuous positive airway pressure. We present a case of a 33 year old male presenting with pneumocephaly as a complication of positive pressure ventilation in the setting of remote craniofacial trauma and presence of ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VPS). This case was successfully managed with needle craniostomy and increasing the pressure of the VPS system to 190 cm H2O.
