We describe a rare neurointerventional complication, namely a stretched and sheared microcatheter, extending 52 cm from its point of retention within an Onyx cast in an infant patient's neck mass, to the groin. The tumor was an unusual manifestation of infantile myofibromatosis and prior attempts at resection had proven impossible due to bleeding. Recommendations regarding microcatheter selection, diagnostic workup, and management of the ensuing complication are given.
