FULL TEXT  


This case report describes an unexpected finding post hemodialysis catheter placement in a child scheduled for living-relation renal transplant. Moreover, the unusual appearance of the catheter on a chest X-ray prompted further investigation of the patient’s vascular anatomy, resulting in the discovery of an aberrant iliac artery course that significantly affected the surgical approach to this planned procedure.
