Chyle leakage is very rare in breast cancer. Knowledge of this complication and the management methods when it happens are quite restricted. Consensus has yet to be formed for its treatment. Three chyle leakage patients are reported in this paper. The first patient underwent two times surgical explorations without locating the chyle leakage sit ahead of time, a typical example of treatment failure. The second patient received simple suture of skin and subcutaneous tissue. We saw a remarkable effect. For the third patient, we fixed the chyle leakage site with the help of lymphoscintigraphy. She recovered quickly when we gave a firm compression to the leakage site. We realized that accurate localization of chyle leakage is necessary for various local procedures, including surgical exploration. We summarized the treatment process and hoped that other doctors will give proper treatment to the complication.
