SILVA, Mónica  y  TORRES, Johny. Chyloascites and bilateral chylothorax. Med. interna Méx. [online]. 2018, vol.34, n.5, pp.815-820. ISSN 0186-4866.  http://dx.doi.org/10.24245/mim.v34i5.1976.

The presentation of chylous ascites and bilateral chylothorax is rare, its etiology can be divided into traumatic and non-traumatic, malignant tumors of abdominal origin are the most frequent cause in adults without a traumatic history. We report the case of a 72-year-old woman with multiple comorbidities, who presented chyllocytosis plus bilateral chylothorax, the integration of clinical data, cytochemical, bacteriological and radiological studies were inconclusive, as part of the etiological approach was performed a laparoscopic exploration that finally established the diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Despite the common occurrence of lymphoma effusions, hairy effusions are rare, a situation that creates interest in the presentation of this clinical case.

Palabras llave : Chylous ascites; Chylothorax, Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
