Niao Zhuo (MM) refers to chyluria

Genital bancroftian filariasis may manifest in several ways including hydrocoele, lymph varix, lymph scrotum, filarial penis or elephantiasis of the genitalia and chyluria
. Hydrocoele accounts for 90% of the morbidity due to genital filariasis.
The thick milky white appearance of the urine is highly suggestive of chyluria
. Upon standing, the urine may eventually separate into 3 layers: a top layer of chylomicrons, a middle layer rich in protein, and a bottom layer containing fibrin clots and cellular debris (1).
, chylous pericardial effusion, pneumoperitoneum, acute abdomen, and lymphedema have also been described.
Some promise has been shown by extracts/products of some plants of which the stem bark of Streblus asper was used clinically under the name "filacid" to treat lymhoedema, chyluria
and other condition of the filarial disease but no claims were made of any direct effect on either mf or adult worms (9,10).
