Abstract

We have encountered a sporadic form of aseptic peritonitis, not previously described, that we refer to as acute sterile peritonitis (ASP). This syndrome, which occurs with a frequency of 0.1% of dialyses, begins abruptly during peritoneal dialysis with abdominal pain, fever, and occasionally chills and vomiting. Coincident with the onset of symptoms, the dialysate return becomes cloudy with many white blood cells. Cultures are negative and resolution occurs within hours with continued dialysis. In this report we detail the clinical features of this new syndrome.
