Neisseria gonorrhoea e and Chlamydia trachomatis are pathogens commonly isolated in pelvic inflammatory disease. Neisseria gonorrhoea e may uncommonly spread outside the urogenital tract to cause complications. We present 2 cases of adolescents with ventriculoperitoneal shunt infection due to N. gonorrhoea e, requiring shunt externalization.
