In the presented case, a screw-in pacemaker lead migrated through the right ventricle, pericardium, left hemidiaphragm, and the left liver lobe into the epigastric region. The rarity of the case is based upon the multiorgan perforation without development of relevant pericardial effusion or intra-abdominal bleeding. Lead extraction was performed uneventfully.
