INTRODUCTION: Vascular erosion is a well-known but infrequent complication of central venous catheters and peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC). We present a case of a patient receiving total parenteral nutrition (TPN) through a PICC that caused vascular erosion resulting in chylous appearing pleural effusions.
