We report a patient with congenital chylothorax who also had neonatal thyrotoxicosis secondary to maternal Graves' disease. Fetal tachycardia with hydrops was detected at 28 weeks' gestational age. The fetus responded to antithyroid medication in utero but had persistent bilateral pleural effusion. At birth, he had respiratory distress due to massive pleural effusion. Cytologic studies of pleural fluid were consistent with chylothorax. To the best of our knowledge, the association of congenital chylothorax with fetal (neonatal) thyrotoxicosis, has not been reported previously.
