Catheter-related thrombosis is a relatively common complication of central venous catheter insertion. The catheter-related complications (malfunctions, infections, and thrombosis) cause serious problems in these patients. In patients presenting with fever and a history of venous catheterization, the right heart cavities and venous system should be carefully evaluated due to the procedure that may form a basis for infective endocarditis even if the catheter is removed. In this article, we report a case of right atrial mass mimicking a catheter in a patient with a history of recurrent venous catheterization due to hemodialysis.
