AbstractWe report 3 patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) who developed reversible ultrafiltration failure secondary to retroperitoneal leakage. The patients presented with pulmonary edema and fluid overload following a sudden onset of ultrafiltration failure on maintenance CAPD. There was no localized edema, suggesting peritoneal leakage in the abdominal wall or the perineum. Radiological examination showed no migration of the Tenckhoff catheter. Leakage of dialysate into the retroperitoneal space was only revealed by computed tomographic (CT) peritoneography. These patients were then treated with intermittent peritoneal dialysis twice weekly. After repeated CT peritoneography showing complete resolution of the leakage, they successfully resumed CAPD treatment 2 months later, without ultrafiltration problems. Our finding suggests that retroperitoneal leakage could be one of the uncommon, yet reversible, causes of acute ultrafiltration failure that can be diagnosed with CT peritoneography.
