Unilateral pleural effusion complicating central venous catheterisation.

PMID:  10794796     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Acute respiratory distress developed in two preterm babies because of unilateral hydrothorax secondary to the migration of a central venous catheter into the pulmonary vasculature. Prompt recognition of the problem and rapid treatment are essential and life saving. This complication of intravenous alimentation catheters has not been previously reported in the neonatal age group.
