A patient is described with chylothorax after harvesting the left internal thoracic artery for coronary artery bypass surgery. Conservative treatment with a medium chain triglycerides diet and tube thoracostomy was not only unsuccessful, but also resulted in the complications of malnutrition and empyema. We recommend early surgical treatment of chylothorax after coronary bypass surgery with the use of an internal thoracic artery.
