We report the case of a 46-year-old woman who noticed a swelling of the left supraclavicular fossa of rapid onset soon after a Mycoplasma Pneumoniae upper respiratory infection. On the basis of clinical history, physical examination and imaging findings, a diagnosis of chyloma due to intense non-productive coughing bouts was made. The supraclavicular swelling progressively disappeared after a few days. This observation prompted us to briefly review the pathophysiology of chylomas.
