Abstract

Post-operative chylothorax is a rare but noxious complication which treatment can be medical, surgical or radiological. We reported a post-operative chylothorax after a right lower lobectomy which failed to be managed surgically and were successfully treated by Lipiodol? lymphangiography. The Lipiodol?, an old but known contrast agent was both used for imaging and treatment purposes.
