Central venous catheterization is frequently performed for perioperative management and long-term intravenous access. Although the complications of central venous catheter insertion have been widely reported, there are few reports of carotid-jugular arteriovenous fistula formation. We describe a case of a carotid-jugular arteriovenous fistula following the insertion of a double-lumen catheter for hemodialysis access. We provide recommendations for the prevention and early detection of this iatrogenic complication.
