Chyloma is a rare clinical entity that occurs secondary to obstruction of lymphatic flow or leakage from lymphangiectatic vessels, which can be secondary to surgery. Herein, we present the computed tomography findings of this challenging diagnosis in an abdominal chyloma patient with left adrenalectomy.
