Purpose : Congenital chylothorax is an accumulation of lymphatic fluid within the pleural space. It is a common cause of unidentified hydrops fetalis. We examined the perinatal history, clinical manifestation, diagnosis, treatment, and outcome in 6 newborns diagnosed to have congenital chylothorax with hydrops fetalis. We also studied the effect of octreotide therapy for congenital chylothorax in relation to conservative...

We experienced a case of isolated fetal pleural effusion diagnosed by antenatal ultrasonogram in the 33th week of gestational age. Chest PA at birth showed massive pleural effusion in both lungs. The serous pleural fluid changed to a milky nature after feeding so we diagnosed it as congenital chylothorax. The infant was managed by chest tube drainage, NPO & TPN...

The isolated fetal pleural effusion is rare and has no other signs of fetal hydrops. Its etiology is unknown but the most common cause is congenital chylothorax. We experienced a case of fetal pleural effusion diagnosed in the 35 weeks gestational age by antenatal ultrasonogram and antenatal diagnosis allowed early therapeutic intervention such as drainage of pleural fluid immediatly after birth. We diagnosed congenital chylothorax...

Chyle is the digestive product absorbed from intestinal lymphatics which the component have high concentration of triglyceride and protein. The various pathological circumstances which give rise to intrathoracic effusion of chyle are well documented and so the etiology is clearly defined in most instances. However, the occurrence of chylothorax in early infancy, in the absence of other demonstrable diseases and...
