Placement of a central venous catheter (CVC) is a common procedure in Neonatology. Complications associated with CVCs include infections and thrombosis. We describe a case of fatal cardiac tamponade due to chylous effusion in a newborn infant with catheter-associated intrathoracic venous thrombosis.
