The demographic characteristics of hemodialysis (HD) patients increase the need for the tunneled cuffed permanent catheter (TCC) as a definitive vascular access (VA) for HD. The internal jugular vein is increasingly being used as a route for TCC or temporary catheter placement and can be associated with serious complications. Among them other authors have described arteriovenous fistula (AVF) creation between the common carotid artery and the right jugular vein. We describe a case of an AVF between the right internal jugular vein and the right internal mammary artery. The fistula was detected during the TCC placement in a patient who underwent several jugular and subclavian catheterisms for HD in her clinical history.
