Resumen

LESINA B, Blaz  y  ABURTO B, María. Octreotide for bilateral chylothorax secondary to lymphoma. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2005, vol.133, n.12, pp.1473-1476. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872005001200009.

Since chylothorax is uncommon and has multiple causes, its best treatment choice is not clear. Recent reports show that octreotide is useful in the treatment of chlylothorax secondary to cancer or caused by surgical procedures. We report a 21 years old male with a chylothorax secondary to a non Hodgkin lymphoma. Treatment with octreotide changed the color and triglyceride content of pleural effusion. Serum albumin and proteins increased and the effusion subsided after the second cycle of chemotherapy with CHOP. Thus octreotide was discontinued on the 27th day of therapy and pleural drainages were whithdrawn. He was discharged in good conditions, 38 days after admission (Rev Méd Chile 2005; 133: 1473-76)
