A 5-week-old male infant was admitted to the paediatric intensive care unit with small bowel obstruction secondary to an inguinal hernia. His postoperative course was complicated by suspected migration of his left internal jugular central venous catheter into branches of the inferior thyroid artery and mediastinum. This resulted in bilateral pleural effusions which were biochemically and visually similar to the total parenteral nutrition he was receiving. After drainage of the pleural effusions he made an uneventful recovery.
