Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) have become popular for a range of indications in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Though PICCs are generally safe, they can be associated with a variety of complications. We present here a case with embolic strokes due to inadvertent arterial placement of PICC, an uncommon but potentially life-threatening complication. A high clinical suspicion with critical evaluation of radiographs is indispensable for suspecting misplaced PICCs.
