Özet

Serious complications of central venous access occur in 0.4-9.9% of patients undergoing attempted central venepuncture. We report an unusual case of an 18-month-old infant in whom a right subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm developed rapidly after attempted subclavian vein catheterization without US guidance failed.
