Lymphorrhea: An unusual complication of jugular venous cathe
A considerable number of end-stage renal disease patients undergo tunneled cuffed catheter insertion for hemodialysis under ultrasonographic guidance while awaiting arteriovenous fistula creation.

Published in the Indian Journal of Nephrology, the authors report a case of a 62-year-old female who underwent tunneled catheter insertion in the left internal jugular vein under ultrasound and fluoroscopic guidance, which was followed by pericatheter serous discharge.

Fluid examination confirmed the diagnosis of lymphorrhea, and lymphoscintigraphy facilitated its localization. This case is reported for its rarity and with a discussion on literature review, complications of lymphorrhea, and their management.
