Chylous ascites is a low-frequency post-operative complication, mainly associated with oncological procedures and radical lymphadenectomies. The management of chylous ascites requires knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the cisterna chyli. A multidisciplinary approach is required to optimize outcomes.
