The development of collateral venous drainage in the neck of a child, who as a neonate had undergone ligation and cannulation of the right internal jugular vein, is described. The resultant vessels were of sufficient calibre to be considered as potential sites for vascular access, although it is possible that their course in the thorax may preclude correct placement of a central venous catheter. Nevertheless, we feel that this case further illustrates the benefit of hand-held ultrasonography in visualizing the vascular structures of the neck. Moreover, ligation of a vein in the neonatal period should not be a contraindication to subsequent assessment of that site for vascular access.
