Carotid-jugular fistula is one of the uncommon complications of internal jugular vein catheterization. It can have serious consequences such as infection, embolization, and high output cardiac failure and requires invasive repair. We describe a case of a common carotid artery-jugular vein arteriovenous fistula following the insertion of a double-lumen catheter for hemodialysis access.
