REMISSION OF FILARIAL CHYLURIA AFTER TREATMENT OF COEXISTENT CONDITIONS

Between April 1965 and March 1984, 659 patients (mean age 52.3 years) with chyluria were encountered (probably from filariasis) and 323 were followed for a mean period of 71.9 months (range 1 to 210 months). Of the 323 patients, chyluria was apparently exacerbated by another condition in 132 (40.8%), and often remitted with effective treatment of the coexistent condition. The findings suggest that chyluria is often accompanied by other physiologic or pathologic processes and treatment of these coexistent conditions should be the initial therapeutic approach.
