We report an unusual presentation of a young man with bilateral groin lymph nodal adenolymphoceles and right leg lymphedema as a manifestation of intestinal lymphangiectasia. Chylous reflux was supported by conventional and isotopic lymphography as well as by a total lipid test showing delayed triglyceride absorption 24 hours after ingestion of 60 gm of butter.After excision of groin masses in conjunction with dietary control (short-medium chain triglycerides), manual massage, pneumatic compression, and long-term wearing of a low stretch elastic garments he remains well.
