Abstract

The management of a pelvic lymphocele is initially expectant. Surgical intervention is not utilized until major problems occur. The first reported case of a postsurgical pelvic lymphcele managed by the use of a percutaneous indwelling catheter inserted and monitored with ultrasound guidance is presented. If this technique proves to be generally successful with more experience, intervention could be considered at an earlier point since a major surgical procedure is not involved.
