Abstract

The pathway of extravasated urine from the retroperitoenum to the ipsilateral and contralateral pleural cavity in cases of urinothorax has been of debate in the literature. We present a proposed route for the extravasated urine pathway from the retroperitoenum to both pleural cavities based on radiological evidence.
