Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review

Abstract

We describe a case of a 40 year old man who presented with bilateral chylothorax secondary to kaposi sarcoma infiltration of the thoracic duct. This patient developed increased dyspnoea in the months prior to admission and had been well established on treatment for a number of months. This is an uncommon manifestation in patients who are on treatment with only a few cases described in the literature.
