Chyluria is the passage of milky urine due to the leakage of lymph into the urinary tract. Chyluria occurs predominantly in adults and is rare in children. We present an unusual case in which a child with proteinuria, hematuria and milky urine was subsequently diagnosed with non-parasitic chyluria. Retrograde cystogram confirmed a lymphatico-calyceal communication. This case showed spontaneous remission. The etiology of this case was not exactly known; however, the prognosis of non-parasitic chyluria (or idiopathic chyluria) is usually very good and the treatment is mostly conservative.
