Chyle leakage after left open adrenalectomy is a quite rare complication. We encountered a young male patient who was operated for left adrenal pheochromocytoma, left laparoscopic adrenalectomy converted to open due to dense adhesions. Postoperatively patient developed chylous fluid drainage on day 2. He was managed conservatively with high protein and MCT oil diet. This case highlights the unusual complication of left adrenalectomy surgery and how it can be managed.
