Chyluria remains an interesting, capricious, clinical entity, characterized by periodic voiding of milky urine containing variable amounts of blood and chyle. When the chyle content is high the urine appears milky and the term chylous urine, first applied by Prout (1816), is appropriate for its designation. Erythrocytes are always present, more commonly microscopically, but occasionally gross admixture with chyle in the urine makes such urine sanguineous and the term hematochyluria becomes the proper terminology.
