Abstract

Sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis is the most serious complication of continuous peritoneal dialysis with a mortality that exceeds 30%. It remains rare in children. The diagnosis is difficult and an abdominal CT should be performed promptly to establish the right diagnosis. We present a 12 years old boy who developed sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis while on peritoneal dialysis who was successfully treated with tamoxifen.
