There are various complications of PICC, bloodstream infection is well known, but the formation of guidewire knots during PICC insertion is rarely reported. Considering the risk of vascular injury in our case, surgical guidewire removal was performed. Although rare, it is necessary to recognize proper treatment for these complications.
