Yes, it is possible to hatch a shiny even if one of the parents is Ditto, it is no different than breeding with other Pokémon, the chance will still be 1/4096.
If you mean will having a shiny Ditto as one of the parents increase the shiny rate, then no, as having shiny parents do not affect the chance if hatching a shiny Pokémon.

Mention that if Ditto is of a different region from the other Pokémon, shiny chances are increased btw

Thank you Qwerty for pointing that out. Indeed, if your parents are of differing country origins, then your chances of hatching a shiny is increased.
So for example, if you have a Japanese Ditto and breed it with an American Charmander, then the chances of hatching a shiny are increased. This is why many people want a foreign Ditto, as it is compatible with any breedable Pokémon.
This method is called the Masuda Method.
