Özet

Chylous ascites is a rare disease in infancy. A two-month-old male infant was admitted to the Department of Pediatrics with chylous ascites. No cause was found throughout the investigation period. The baby recovered spontaneously through breast-feeding without any specific treatment and chylous ascites disappeared at the age of six months.
