A 52-year-old man with diabetes mellitus, congestive heart failure, morbid obesity (body mass index: 37), and chronic kidney disease started peritoneal dialysis using a surgically inserted catheter (midline incision). Catheter dysfunction necessitated surgical repositioning. During the operation, a cavity localized in the subcutaneous fat of the abdominal wall was discovered, with connection to the peritoneum space and the entire catheter within the cavity. The malfunctioning catheter was replaced through the same insertion site without an attempt to fix the cavity.
