Abstract

A 59-year-old man underwent resection of an aneurysm of the descending thoracic aorta with graft replacement. A postoperative chylothorax was managed by nonsurgical means and subsided. Subsequently, an expansile mass appeared in the left side of the chest and was surgically removed. This was found to be a chylous pseudocyst. Management of chylothorax and the details of this unique case are described.
