Chyluria occurs as a result of communication between the lymphatics and the urinary system. It is a common problem in developing countries. Since its original description by Hippocrates, chyluria has been mentioned frequently in the literature and has remained puzzling in many reports. As a rare occurrence, chyluria may present many diagnostic and therapeutic problems. A man with an interesting history of non-parasitic chyluria and an unusual radiological finding is described herein. The etiology and various treatments of chyluria are discussed.
