ABSTRACT

Introduction and Objectives: Chyluria, or the passage of chyle into the urine from anomalous lymphatic connections, results in a characteristic milky urine. In severe cases, it can cause signifi cant morbidity from nutritional losses and immune suppression. Although predominantly associated with Wuchereria bancrofti infections, non-parasitic cases have also been described.
