Chylopericardium is a recognized complication of thoracic trauma, surgery or malignancy. Idiopathic or primary presentations, however, are rarely encountered in clinical practice. The severity of its presentation varies from the complete absence of symptoms to cardiac tamponade. We present the case of a 23-year-old woman with chylopericardium and extensive neck vein thrombosis that was managed surgically with a pericardial window.
