Abstract
Central venous catheterization is widely used for patient monitoring and drug administration during the perioperative period. However, several complications could occur during the procedure; a catheter malpositioning is one of the rare complications that have been reported. Thus, we report the case of central venous catheter malpositioning in the left internal thoracic vein via the left internal jugular vein.
Key Words: Catheter malposition, Central venous catheterization, Internal thoracic vein
