Abstract
We report a rare case of a woman with inflammatory carcinoma, an unusu al type of cutaneous metastasis, arising from signet-ring cell carcino ma of the stomach, who developed chylothorax as the skin lesion progre ssed over the chest. No thoracoabdominal lymphadenopathy which can cau se obstruction of the thoracic duct was shown by computed tomography, Although a very rare condition, inflammatory carcinoma could be a caus e of non-traumatic chylothorax.
