Abstract

Chylous ascites is the presence of lymph from the thorax or bowel in the abdominal cavity. In Western countries, the most common causes of chylous ascites in adults are tumours, cirrhosis, and postoperative leakage, whereas the most common causes in children are congenital lymphatic anomalies and trauma. By contrast, in developing countries, infectious causes are responsible for most cases of chylous ascites. We present a case of chylous ascites secondary to acute necrotising pancreatitis refractory to conservative treatment that was definitively resolved after intranodal lymphangiography with lipiodol. This is a safe and efficacious minimally invasive treatment for lymphatic leakage.

Keywords:
Chylous ascites

Resumen

La ascitis quilosa es la presencia de linfa de origen torácico o intestinal en la cavidad abdominal. Las causas más comunes en adultos en países occidentales son la patología tumoral, la cirrosis y las posquirúrgicas, mientras que en niños lo son las anomalías linfáticas congénitas y las traumáticas. Por el contrario, las etiologías infecciosas son responsables de la mayoría de los casos en los países en vías de desarrollo. Presentamos un caso de ascitis quilosa secundaria a pancreatitis aguda necrotizante, resistente a medidas conservadoras, que se resolvió de forma definitiva tras la realización de una linfografía intranodal con lipiodol. Se trata de una técnica segura, eficaz y mínimamente invasiva en la detección y tratamiento de fugas linfáticas.
