Case report: chylous ascites and carcinoid tumors: possible association of two rare disorders

, : Case report: chylous ascites and carcinoid tumors: possible association of two rare disorders. American Journal of the Medical Sciences 296(4): 272-274

Three cases of chylous ascites are reported in a series of 275 patients with carcinoid tumor. All three patients had diarrhea and elevated serotonin production. The literature is reviewed and the possible causes of the chylous ascites are discussed. It is suggested that a history of clinically significant diarrhea in a patient with chylous ascites should lead to biochemical tests for carcinoid tumors.
