Femoral venous catheterization is the most used technic in emergency he-modialysis. Some uncommon mechanical complications can occur during a catheterization. We report the case of an accidental migration of a guide wire during the placement of a hemodialysis femoral catheter. The case of a patient admitted in the nephrology department at Aristide Le Dantec University Hospital for malignant hypertension was investigated. Emergency hemodialysis was indicated. Surgical extraction of the metal guide has been performed and the outcome was favorable.
