Abstract

A 65-year-old man sequentially developed a chylous neck fistula, left-sided chylothorax, and chylous ascites after a transhiatal total esophagectomy for adenocarcinoma of the distal esophagus. The pathophysiology of this unusual accumulation of chyle in three separate anatomic compartments is examined.
