Conclusion

In the case of thoracic duct lymph of a patient with Dubin-Johnson’s syndrome, the slightly elevated pressure, increased protein concentration, normal flow rate and disturbed BSP excretion were observed. The phenomenon of re-elevation of serum BSP on BSP-test was given whereas the thoracic duct lymph was drained from the body. It was suggested that the second elevated curve of serum BSP on BSP-test was resulted from the direct regurgitation of BSP from hepatic parenchymal cells to blood stream.
