INTRODUCTION: Chylothorax is a relatively rare condition characterized by pleural fluids with a high concentration of fatty acids. Bilateral chylothorax is an even more unusual presentation. Although cryptogenic cirrhosis has been described as a possible etiology in literature, no case report has been described. Here we describe a case of bilateral chylothorax non traumatic in etiology secondary to cryptogenic cirrhosis.
