We reported a 14 months old boy referred for evaluation of chylous ascites to our nuclear medicine department. Tc-99m Phytate was injected subcutaneously in his calves and whole body images as well as abdominal SPECT were performed. The SPECT images could localize an area of several intestinal lymphangiomata in the abdominal region. The abnormal region was surgically resected and the patient ascites symptoms subsided consequently.
