Treatment of PICC associated infective thrombophlebitis

Abstract:

Septic thrombophlebitis requires both adapted antimicrobial therapy and control of the source of the infection. The source of the infection is generally controlled through adequate management of anticoagulation. In this study, we present the case of a 50 years old woman, with septic thrombophlebitis of a peripherally inserted central catheters line and with persistent bacteremia and thrombus, where in situ thrombolysis has successfully removed the thrombus.
