Postoperative chyle leaks are rare. Prolonged chyle leaks usually result in loss of fluid and nutrition, poor wound healing, and longer hospital stays. We present two cases of postoperative chyle leaks following lymph node dissection.The first case underwent ablation of the left neck lymph nodes, resulting in chyle leaks in the left deep neck. The second case had chylothorax following a thoracoscopic right upper lobectomy of the lung and mediastinal lymph node dissection. To detect chyle leaks in the region of lymph node dissection, we supplied milk or olive oil via the nasogastric tube following general anesthesia. The chyle leaks usually stopped after suture ligation. For security, the thoracic duct was also ligated in case of chylothorax. Both patients were uneventfully discharged.
