Abstract BACKGROUND: Between February and April 2020, Italy experienced an overwhelming growth of the COVID-19 pandemic. Little is known, at the country level, where and how patients on renal replacement therapy (RRT) have been mostly affected. METHODS: Survey of the network of Nephrology centers using a simplified 17 items electronic questionnaire designed by Italian Society of Nephrology COVID-19 Research Group. We used spatial epidemiology and geographical information systems to map SARS-CoV-2 spread among RRT patients in Italy. RESULTS: On April 9th 2020, all nephrology centers (n = 454...

ConclusionsCOVID-19 disease appears to have a similar clinical course in children with underlying chronic renal pathologies, even in immunosuppressed cases, as in healthy children of the same age; however, special attention must be paid to fluid management and drug dose adjustment.

Acute peritoneal dialysis (PD) has been used in COVID-19 as an alternative to intermittent hemodialysis or continuous renal replacement therapy to mitigate the overwhelming demand for dialysis1,2. Liters of PD effluent are discarded in the sewerage system by both patients and medical institutions performing PD on a daily basis. The detection of SARS-CoV-2 in the peritoneal waste of a COVID-19 infected patient with end stage kidney disease was previously reported3. Given the uncertainty regarding the risk for viral transmission through the handling of PD effluent of patients with confirmed COVID-19 infections, we set out to...

AbstractOn 31 December 2019, cases of pneumonia whose cause was later identified as SARS-CoV-2 were detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province of China, and now COVID-19 has spread worldwide. On March 1, 2020, a 69-year-old Japanese man who had been on hemodialysis for 3  years was diagnosed as having COVID-19 pneumonia and hospitalized at our Medical Center. Pulmonary CT revealed bilateral multiple consolidation with bilateral pleural effusion. Aggressive weight reduction was needed to improve the patient’s respiratory condition. Hemodialysis therapy was perform ed in isolation with hydroxychloroquine administratio...
