GOMEZ-MARTIN, J. M. et al. Chylous ascytes secondary to acute pancreatitis: a case report and review of literature. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2012, vol.27, n.1, pp.314-318. ISSN 0212-1611.
Chylous ascites is an uncommon finding which is due to the presence of thoracic or intestinal lymph in the abdominal cavity. It is usually caused by a chronic disruption of the lymphatic system. The present report is one of the rare cases in the literature of chylous ascites secondary to idiopathic acute pancreatitis, which showed a complete resolution with a combination of low fat enteral nutrition with MCT and somatostatin analogs.
