    Today, standard treatment of pleural effusion is ultrasound guided insertion of a pleural pigtail catheter. This procedure is known to have a low complication rate, but complications as pneumothorax, haemorrhage and infection are occurring. The most frequent complications are seen at the time of insertion. We present a case of a 68-year-old woman in the intensive care unit with normal coagulation status who after an uneventful removal of a pleural pigtail catheter developed a tension haemothorax requiring acute evacuation.
