We report a case of delayed pneumothorax, central venous catheter migration and iatrogenic hydrothorax in a 22-year-old female. The left subclavian central venous catheter initially transfixed the lung apex; pneumothorax occurred 24 h later following initiation of positive pressure ventilation. Lung collapse as a result of the pneumothorax caused catheter migration and hydrothorax. Catheter removal and chest drainage led to an uneventful recovery.
