Chylous ascites has been reported only rarely as a possible consequence of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) surgical treatment. The present report regards a case of chylous ascites that developed after surgical treatment of CDH and was interestingly anticipated by increased scrotal volume. The aim was to alert neonatologists and pediatric surgeons about the potential usefulness of this clinical sign as a precocious "alarm bell" for chylous ascites development.
