Abstract

A 66-year-old patient was admitted to a peripheral hospital with necrotising fasciitis and septic shock, with a background history of severe co-morbid diseases. The septic shock was managed at an intensive care unit with IV vasopressors and IV antibiotics via right internal jugular central venous catheter (CVC). Insertion of CVC was complicated by migration of guide wire in to the inferior vena cava (IVC). This case illustrates the migration of a guide wire as a complication of CVC insertion, and the subsequent retrieval of this guide wire.
