Abstract

Spontaneous renal rupture with hemoperitoneum in patients receiving continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) is very rare. Hemoperitoneum in peritoneal dialysis patients is often attributed to mechanical, gynecological or intraperitoneal abdominal pathology. Few cases have been described with retroperitoneal bleeding in CAPD patients. Hence we report one case of spontaneous renal rupture with retroperitoneal hemorrhage and haemoperitoneum in a CAPD patient with acquired cystic kidney disease.
