Abstract


Lymphoma is a common cause of nontraumatic chylothorax. Clinical success rates of thoracic duct embolization are lower in patients with nontraumatic chylothorax compared to patients with traumatic chylothorax. Herein, we report a case of nontraumatic chylothorax and lymphoma in a 77-year-old man managed with thoracic duct embolization. The chest tube drainage decreased but not was sufficient to enable removal of the chest tube. Therefore, a second embolization was performed through a direct puncture of the lymphatic mass in the lung, following which the chyle leakage ceased, and the chest tube was removed. The treatment strategy discussed in this report may be an effective therapeutic option for select patients with nontraumatic chylothorax.
