A patient wth a lymph cyst of the thigh following sulfuric acid hums of both feet is presented. It was diagnosed by percutaneous lymphangiography with Ethiodal. Omentopexy was performed with success. A complication of hernia of small intestine into the thigh was corrected by herniorraphy. Omentopexy is an excellent modality to improve lymph flow. Awareness of hernia post operatively may limit its use.
