Successful percutaneous embolization of refractory chylous ascites following peritoneal lymph node dissection.

Radiol Case Rep 2019 Jun 30;14(6):708-710. Epub 2019 Mar 30.

Department of Radiology, Madigan Army Medical Center, 9040A Jackson Avenue, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA 98431, USA.

Chylous leaks are an uncommon complication in patients undergoing surgical procedures with the majority of cases responding to conservative therapies. Described is a case of a 23-year-old male who developed debilitating refractory chylous ascites as a complication after retroperitoneal lymph node dissection for testicular cancer. Prior to being evaluated by interventional radiology, he required weekly large-volume paracentesis in addition to standard conservative therapies. Read More

Calcium Channel Blocker-Related Chylous Ascites: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

J Clin Med 2019 Apr 5;8(4). Epub 2019 Apr 5.

Department of Internal Medicine, Chung Shan Medical University Hospital and Chung Shan Medical University, Taichung 40201, Taiwan.

Background: Chylous ascites is an uncommon condition characterized by a white, milky-appearing peritoneal fluid, and is related to disruption of the lymphatic system from any cause. There have been very few previous reports of calcium channel blockers (CCBs) as potential causes of chylous ascites, and most of the patients were undergoing peritoneal dialysis.

Aims: To review the pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, laboratory examinations, treatment options, and prognosis of patients with CCB-related chylous ascites. Read More

Transudative chylothorax associated with alcoholic cirrhosis.

Oxf Med Case Reports 2019 Mar 29;2019(3):omz019. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Department of Respiratory Medicine, Yokkaichi Municipal Hospital, Sibata2-2-37, Shibata, Yokkaichi-shi, Mie, Japan.

We present the case of a 53-year-old man with decompensated alcoholic cirrhosis who was referred for right pleural effusion. After investigation, the patient was ultimately diagnosed with cirrhotic chylothorax. Chylothorax is a rare manifestation of cirrhosis, which results from the trans-diaphragmatic passage of chylous ascites. Read More

Non-contrast MR lymphography of the lymphatic system of the liver.

Eur Radiol 2019 Apr 1. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Faculté de Médecine Pierre et Marie Curie and Department of Radiology, Saint-Antoine Hospital, Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris, Sorbonne Université, 184 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, 75012, Paris, France.

This review shows the images obtained with non-contrast MR lymphography in different pathologic conditions affecting the liver. Non-contrast MR lymphography is obtained with a free-breathing 3D high spatial resolution fast-recovery fast spin-echo sequence similar to that used for 3D MR cholangiopancreatography. The liver is the largest lymph-producing organ generating approximately half of the body's lymphatic fluid and is the most important part of the lymphatic system from a functional point of view.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Mar 22;12(3). Epub 2019 Mar 22.

Department of Internal Medicine, Hospital de Cascais, Cascais, Portugal.

A 29-year-old man with diarrhoea, fever, abdominal pain and multiple purple papular lesions, neither pruriginous nor painful, was diagnosed with HIV-1 infection and disseminated Kaposi sarcoma (KS) with gastrointestinal involvement. He was started on highly active antiretroviral therapy immediately, as well as doxorubicin. Three weeks later, the patient developed bilateral moderate pleural effusion and large-volume ascites compatible with chylothorax and chylous ascites. Read More

University of Kentucky, Department of Radiology, 800 Rose St, Lexington, KY, 40536 USA.

Chylous ascites can be caused by infection, trauma, malignancy, or maybe a complication after major abdominal surgery including liver transplantation. We present a case of a patient who developed chylous ascites following his liver transplantation. He was subsequently treated with direct embolization of lymphatic trunk efferent branches with a mixture of N-butyl cyanoacrylate and lipiodol after the identification of a localized leak on a fluoroscopic lymphangiogram.

Sclerosing Mesenteritis.

Am J Gastroenterol 2019 Feb 26. Epub 2019 Feb 26.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Sclerosing mesenteritis is a rare non-neoplastic disorder characterized by fat necrosis, chronic inflammation, and fibrosis typically of the small bowel mesentery. Our understanding of this disorder is limited by its rarity as well as inconsistent terminology used across the literature. While prior abdominal surgery or trauma, autoimmunity, infection, ischemia, and malignancy have been suggested to be involved in the pathogenesis of the disorder, it remains poorly understood.

Chylous Ascites due to Mantle Cell Lymphoma.

Eur J Case Rep Intern Med 2018 26;5(6):000871. Epub 2018 Jun 26.

Internal Medicine Department, Centro Hospitalar de Vila Nova de Gaia-Espinho, Portugal.

Chylous ascites is rare and results in accumulation of lymph in the abdominal cavity, due to several mechanisms. The ascitic liquid is milky because of the high concentration of triglycerides (>200 mg/dl). The higher incidence compared to the past is explained by increased survival of patients with cancer and more aggressive surgery. Read More

Rinsho Ketsueki 2019;60(1):12-16

Department of Hematology, Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka City University.

In allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), ascites may develop owing to several causes, including sinusoidal obstruction syndrome, infections, malignancies, and malnutrition. However, it is often difficult to determine its precise cause. Here, a 59-year-old male developed chylous ascites three months post allogeneic bone marrow transplantation for relapsed acute myeloid leukemia. Read More

Division of General Thoracic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Shiga University Medical Science, Setatsukinowa-cho, Otsu, Shiga 5202192, Japan.

To the best of our knowledge, there have been no previous reports of chylothorax developing after pancreatectomy, although chylous ascites can occur. In patients with a pleuroperitoneal communication, ascitic fluid can flow into the thoracic cavity through a small hole in the diaphragm. A 70-year-old woman underwent total pancreatectomy and was referred to our department for treatment of right chylothorax after removal of her abdominal drainage tubes. Read More

Department of Surgery, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York.

Chylous ascites is a difficult, albeit uncommon complication of laparoscopic live donor nephrectomy (LLDN). Lymphatic leak is believed to be a result of injury to the cisterna chyli, regional lymph nodes, or other peri-aortic lymphatics intraoperatively. Recommended management with dietary modifications can result in malnutrition and immunodeficiency. Read More

Low-Dose Radiation Therapy is an Effective Treatment for Refractory Postoperative Chylous Ascites: A Case Report.

Pract Radiat Oncol 2018 Dec 15. Epub 2018 Dec 15.

Department of Surgery, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, Oregon.

Purpose: When lymphatic pathways are disrupted via obstruction or traumatic injury, a temporary or chronic chyle leak may result, which is defined as the presence of chyle that collects outside of the lymphatic vessels within the thoracic or abdominal cavities. For a chyle leak that is refractory to surgical repair, no good options exist. Radiation therapy (RT) can result in scarring and fibrosis of the lymphatic fistula. Read More

Cloudy Dialysate as the Initial Presentation for Lymphoma.

Case Rep Nephrol 2018 9;2018:2192043. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, Ottawa Hospital, Ottawa, ON, Canada.

Turbid dialysate in a patient on peritoneal dialysis is usually due to peritonitis and almost all these patients are started on empirical antibiotics pending cultures. However, in few of them with culture negative fluid, this could represent other etiologies like chyle, which requires more intensive investigations, and analysis of fluid itself reveals some rare diagnosis. We present one such report of chylous ascites with prompt investigation leading to a diagnosis of malignancy in a peritoneal dialysis patient. Read More

Although lymphadenectomy for gynecological cancer is often associated with chylous leakage, the proper management of this complication remains a matter of debate. In the present study a case of chylous leakage successfully treated with lipiodol lymphangiography is described. A 33-year-old patient with ovarian cancer experienced chylous leakage following total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, omentectomy, and pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy.
