What is this test?

Cholesterol in body fluids is clinically important and relevant in particular to the diagnosis of a cholesterol effusion. Cholesterol effusions (also known as pseudochylothorax or chyliform effusion) are important to differentiate from chylothorax. Pseudochylous or chyliform effusions accumulate gradually through the breakdown of cellular lipids in long-standing effusions such as rheumatoid pleuritis, tuberculosis, or myxedema, and by definition the effluent contains high concentrations of cholesterol. The fluid may have a milky or opalescent appearance and be similar to that of a chylous effusion, which contains high concentrations of triglycerides in the form of chylomicrons.

Also known as Total Cholesterol Enzymatic method Pleural Fluid.
