Abstract

BackgroundPaediatric literature about encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis (EPS) is limited and comes primarily from anecdotic experiences. In this study, we described the incidence and characteristics of EPS in a large paediatric chronic peritoneal dialysis (CPD) patient population.MethodsWe reviewed files of patients starting CPD at 12 months of age from the same registry (1:28.3 CPD-months). The mortality rate was 43%. A more aggressive course and an association with calcineurin inhibitors were observed in transplanted patients. ConclusionsSurveillance for EPS should be maintained in high-risk children who received long-term PD even after years from CPD withdrawal.
