Abstract: 

A 30-year-old female with end-stage renal disease was a candidate for dual lumen catheter placement. After catheter insertion, O2 saturation measurement of the aspirated blood from the catheter was similar to that of arterial blood. They referred the patient to our hospital after 48 hours. Diagnostic procedures revealed that the tip of the catheter had entered the pleural cavity. Catheter removal in the CPR room resulted in hemorrhagic shock. The patient was resuscitated and stabilized and sent to the operating room. A laceration found at the junction of right jugular and right subclavian veins and was surgically repaired. The patient was discharged after ten days without any complication.
