Background

Chylous leaks are uncommon conditions resulting from leakage of intestinal lymph (chyle) outside the lymphatic system. The cause can be either traumatic or nontraumatic. Lymphatic leakage can induce local complications, such as infections or delayed wound healing, or cause severe malnutrition. Treatment has traditionally consisted with a combination of low fat enteral nutrition and somatostatin analogs, and/or surgery.

Lymphangiography (LG) is a valuable tool for the detection of various types of lymphatic leakage including chylothorax and chylous ascites. Besides the diagnostic role of identifying the lymphatic leaks, LG plays a therapeutic role for lymphatic leakage.
