Sažetak
Peritoneal dialysis (PD) can be considered as the first method to start dialysis treatment because it improves the patient quality of life and survival compared to hemodialysis (in the first two years). Hydrothorax is a rare complication of PD. We present a 66-year-old female patient diagnosed with end-stage renal disease caused by chronic tubulointerstitial nephritis. One month after peritoneal catheter had been inserted, the patient started continuous ambulatory PD. Several weeks after PD had been introduced, the patient complained of cough and weight gain. Chest x-ray revealed pleural effusion on the right side and pleural puncture proved a high concentration of glucose in the aspirate, and the diagnosis of ‘sweet hydrothorax’ was made. Additionally, computerized tomography (CT) peritoneography clearly showed contrast leak from peritoneal cavity to thoracic cavity. PD was stopped and the catheter for PD removed. Now, the patient is on the waiting list for kidney transplantation. ‘Sweet hydrothorax’ is a rare complication of PD and CT peritoneography is the most sensitive noninvasive diagnostic tool. In most patients, PD is replaced by hemodialysis, although surgical treatment is also possible.
