Posttraumatic arteriovenous fistulas can form between vessels of the thorax that have sustained loss of integrity to the vessel wall. Although most are caused by injuries as a consequence of missile penetration or stab wounds, iatrogenic damage is a potential cause. Herein we present a case of a systemic arteriovenous fistula involving an intercostal artery and subcutaneous vein after chest tube placement.
