OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe the clinical and bacteriological characteristics of patients with peritoneal dyalisis-related peritonitis. METHODS: A cross-sectional, descriptive study conducted at an Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social hospital, in Zacapetec, Morelos, Mexico. The sample included was non-probabilistic and consecutive. All the patients with current registration, and diagnosed with peritoneal dyalisis-related peritonitis were included in the sample...

INTRODUCTION: Primary peritonitis is rare condition in children previously healthy. It is often related to cirrosis and kidney disease or peritoneal dyalisis. The diagnosis must be made at laparotomy in the absence of intraabdominal findings and positive cultures of peritoneal fluids. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two cases were studied. Both cases were diagnosed during surgery and had positive cultures for streptococcus pneumaniae, recovery was rapid with broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy in peritonitis caused by gram positives cocos...

This a retrospective research which reviewed the files of 84 patients who underwent peritoneal dyalisis from July 1996 to July 2001. The aim was describing the causes which led those patients to drop out the dyalisis programme. The mean age of the group was 54.9 years old; 52.4% were male and 53.6% had proper sanitation conditions. The base pathologies of the group were Diabetes Mellitus (39.3%) and Systemic Arterial Hypertension (36.9%). The incidence of peritonitis was 53.6%, mainly during the first year (53...

Symptomatic cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection usually affects immunocompromised patients, such as transplant recipients. From that point of view, the patient with endstage renal disease under maintenance dialysis is considered as immunocompetent. Thus, opportunistic infections, such as CMV infection, is not systematicaly searched in these patients, despite that an impaired cellular immunity has been reported in dialysis patients. We report a case of CMV esophagitis, clinically symptomatic, in a patient endstage renal disease under peritoneal dialysis, without other known immunosuppressive factors and with a good clinical response to gancyclovir treatment...

Dialysis-related amyloidosis (DRA) is a complication of long-term dialysis and can also be seen in patients with chronical renal failure and on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dyalisis. This review focuses on the chemical modifications of beta(2)-microglobulin that lead to the formation and deposition of beta(2)-amyloid fibrils in periarticular and articular sites which ultimately results in the clinical and radiographic characteristics of this devastating disease. Its most common manifestations are carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder pain and destructive arthropathy...

Congestive heart failure may frequently occur in patients with isolated coarctation of the aorta within the first six months of life. Renal failure is on the contrary a very rare pathologic sequela. This is caused by a low renal blood flow related either to a poorly developed collateral circulation or in those instances of preductal coartation to an early closure of ductus arteriosus. Peritoneal dyalisis is very effective in these critically ill infants both in correcting biochemical abnormalitics and in supporting cardiac performance...
