[Bilateral chylothorax after mild trauma: apropos of a case]
Journal - Revue de pneumologie clinique (FRANCE )
The authors report a new case of bilateral chylothorax predominant on the left side, which occurred after movements of body trunk hyperextension in a 52-year old woman without any notable history. The clinical signs revealing the lesion were left thoracic pain and dyspnoea. The effusion had been preceded by a painless and transient left cervical tumefaction. The outcome was favourable after two left pleural draining punctures and rest.
