Percutaneous endoscopic-guided gastrostomy (PEG) is done routinely on patients who suffer from inability to feed by mouth. PEG is generally considered a safe procedure with a low complication rate. A commonly underreported complication of PEG is malposition. This manuscript is a guideline to diagnosis and management of PEG malposition. We describe the different types of malposition, their diagnosis and management.
