Abstract

The prenatal diagnosis by ultrasound of congenital chylothorax is described allowing early intervention immediately after delivery. Unilateral fluid collection in the right lung with marked displacement of the heart to the left were the most prominent sonographic signs. Post partum thoracocentesis and chylus fluid drainage served as a life saving procedure.
