Introduction: One of the important complications of peripheral venous catheters is suppurative thrombophlebitis that would be life threatening without treatment. In this report, we introduce a patient who developed purulent thrombophlebitis due to venous catheter in the upper limb after coronary artery bypass graft surgery. Multiple abscess formation was developed on her upper limb after the third day of coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). The limb was fatty and edematous; therefore, the abscesses were drained by multiple small incisions. Wounds managed to be closed as secondary wund healing. Three weeks later the patient discharged with good condition. It seems that venous excision can be avoided in some cases involved by suppurative thrombophlebitis.
