Abstract

Chylothorax is an accumulation of lymph (containing a great amount of lymphocytes, triglycerides, and chylomicrons) in the pleura due to the blockage of thoracic duct drainage. The etiology may be from either traumatic or non-traumatic causes (sarcoidosis, neoplasm, chest irradiation, SVO etc), however there also have been reported as idiopathic forms. Direct trauma and malignancy are the most common causes of the chylothorax in adult with reported incidence of 50% and 30% respectively. However, the central vein thrombosis as a cause of chylothorax is uncommon and only a few cases has been reported in literature. It was mainly related with central venous catheterization. We reported a case of end stage renal failure (ESRF) patient with a previous history of central venous cannulation before and presented with persistent unilateral chylothorax.
