Background: Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients are relatively understudied in the literature, even though they have a serious impact in the morbidity parameters and the quality of life for this group of patients. Various diagnostic tools have been used, including instrumental methods and questionnaires, invariably validated in comparative studies.Summary: The prevalence of GI disorders is very high in PD patients. Compared to the haemodialysis patients they present a higher prevalence of reflux, eating dysfunction, gastroesophageal reflux, intestinal obstruction or adhesions and abdominal ...

The patient continued hemodialysis and pseudomembranous enteritis was contracted. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy was performed due to poor appetite and blood eosinophilia. During endoscopy, a flare, swollen mucous membrane, and multiple verrucous erosions were noted in the gastric antrum. Biopsy and histopathological examination of gastric mucosa showed infiltration of plasma cells containing...
