Abstract

The authors report on 12 personal observations of lymphoportal fistulas, which ·represented 0.24% of their series of lymphographies. This rare complication of lymphography has no clinical or biological liver manifestations. Review of 71 cases in the literature confirmed that hepatic oi I embolization only occurs when there are lymphatic masses, with or without associated thrombosis of the inferior vena cava.
