Abstract

A case of thorombosis of the superior vena cava (SVC) was complicated by unilateral
chylothorax . Removal of the SVC clot and repairing its stenosis with geor-tex patch
led to the prompt resolution of the chylothorax .
Chylothorax is an uncommon result of obstruction of the SVC. The most reported
cause is the placement of the central venous catheters.(1-6)
We describe a case of chylothorax after atrial septal defect( ASD) repair with single
pericardial patch
