Abstract
Chylous ascites is a rare complication following treatment for gynecologic malignancies. Conservative management is usually effective for the treatment of postoperative chylous ascites. If conservative management fails, surgical management should be considered. This is the first domestic case reported in which retroperitoneal lymph node dissection for primary fallopian tubal cancer resulted in persistent chylous ascites. The patient was treated with total parenteral nutrition (TPN) and a medium-chain triglyceride diet for about 8 weeks. So we present the case with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Chylous ascites, Primary fallopian tubal cancer, Treatment of chyloperitoneum
