Özet

We report a rare appearance of cisterna chyli appearing as a giant cystic structure on routine abdominal ultrasonography (US). Diagnosis was established with color Doppler US and after magnetic resonance imaging. This report describes an unusual appearance of the cisterna chyli that radiologists should be familiar with, especially on the routine conventional gray-scale US to avoid mistaking it for a pathologic condition.
