Abstract

The use of indwelling central catheters for long-term administration of hyperalimentation, chemotherapy or other intravenous therapies is increasing. This unusual presentation of a catheter-induced right atrial thrombus was complicated by fungal infection. We present a case of a paediatric sickle-cell patient who underwent surgical removal of a right atrial thrombus secondary to fungal (Candida tropicalis) endocarditis from an indwelling catheter. Successful thrombus removal utilizing cardiopulmonary bypass and subsequent discharge underscores the importance of surgical therapy in treating this important complication.
