We report a case of chylous ascites as a rare complication following elective aortic aneurysm repair in a 66-year-old male. After its early development on the second postoperative day, re-laparotomy was performed with ligation of fistulas and omentumplasty. After recurrence of chylous ascites, conservative treatment for three months including parenteral nutrition and low-fat diet under continuous peritoneal drainage led finally to success.
