Abstract

Placement of central venous catheter (CVC) can lead to complications such as, malposition of catheter and perforation and/or injury of nearby blood vessels and structures. We present a case about malposition of central venous catheter (CVC) from right internal jugular vein (IJV) into right intra pleural space. It is advisable to check free venous outflow in all the ports of CVC following placement of CVC catheter. Chest radiograph should be taken to confirm the position.
