Lipiduria, also known as lipuria, refers to the presence of lipids within the urine. When lipids are present in macroscopic quantities, lipiduria can be visualized as a fat-fluid level on computed tomography imaging. Although the general differential diagnosis of lipiduria is broad, reported etiologies of lipiduria diagnosed by computed tomography have primarily included chyluria, urine-induced lipolysis, and trauma. We report a case of lipiduria occurring coincidentally with resolution of perivesical fat necrosis in a patient after partial right hemicolectomy for B cell lymphoma.
