Two cases of septic thrombosis of the vena cava induced by central venous catheterization are reported. Computed tomography showed thrombi containing gas bubbles in the venae cavae; one involving the superior vena cava and the other the left-sided inferior vena cava. Computed tomography also demonstrated surrounding inflammatory infiltrations in the upper mediastinum or retroperitoneum.
