Chyluria

Am J Dis Child. 1972;124(1):99-101. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1972.02110130101017
Abstract

Idiopathic recumbent chyluria occurred in a 5½-year-old girl. Marked undernutrition was present. Spontaneous remission, possibly related to retrograde pyelography, resulted in satisfactory improvement in her nutritional status. Chylous thrombosis is suggested as a mechanism whereby spontaneous remission may occur.
