Peripheral intravenous cannulation in children is associated with occasional morbidity. We present a case where a large volume of blood, administered through a small peripheral cannula in the antecubital fossa, was found to have extravasated into the soft tissues, causing catastrophic vascular compromise. The expedient removal of the extravasate using a lipoaspiration cannula restored perfusion immediately to the affected limb and negated the need for surgical fasciotomies.
