In intensive care units, central venous catheters are frequently used to resuscitate ill patients by administration of intra-venous fluids, medication, and giving parenteral nutrition. But these devices are source of complications that can sometimes be life threatening. We describe a case of pleural effusion that appears many days after internal jugular central line insertion and discuss the mechanism and management of this serious complication.
