Thrombus formation is a known complication of the use of peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) lines. The thrombus can be asymptomatic or compromise limb or organ function. Symptomatic thrombi need to be treated. The treatment options include the use of unfractionated heparin or low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH). We present a case of a PICC line-associated thrombus that resolved after treatment with LMWH.
