We present a 56-year-old man who developed acute transient phlebitis of the right cephalic vein during an intravenous injection of eptifibatide (Integrilin, Schering Plough, Kenilworth, NJ). The eptifibatide injections were discontinued, and signs of phlebitis disappeared within minutes. The patient's course was uneventful, and he was discharged home after 8 days. As far as we know, this is the first report of acute transient phlebitis during intravenous eptifibatide injections in the English-language medical literature.
