Abstract
In this report, we present a case of chyluria that is a very rare urine abnormality in Korea. A 43-year-old woman was referred to our clinic with intermittent turbid and creamy-colored urine for 10 days. The urine tests, including a urine lipid profile, indicated a diagnosis of chyluria. There was no evidence of secondary causes of chyluria such as a tumor and filariasis, and a urinary-lymphatic fistula was not found. The patient was instructed to begin a high protein diet with low fat content and medium chain triglyceride oil supplementation. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report describing a patient that presented with chyluria in Korea.
