Abstract Chronic thoracic duct drainage in the experimental animal has been employed to deplete thymic dependent lymphocytes with resultant cellular immune deficiency.1-3 The human clinical correlate is the patient with chylothorax or even more analogous, chronic chyluria. The most common cause of chyluria worldwide is filariasis. Other causes include trauma, tuberculosis, neoplasms, infections, lymphactic aneurysm, and thoracic duct stenosis.4 We recently evaluated a child with this defect, giving us the opportunity of evaluating the effect of chronic T-cell depletion on immune reactivity.
