Acid phosphatase, beta-D-Glucuronidase and N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase were assessed cytochemically in peritoneal macrophages obtained from 50 patients with end-stage renal failure treated by intermittent peritoneal dialysis and from 30 control subjects with normal renal function. A statistically significant increase in beta-D-glucuronidase activity accompanied by a decrease in acid phosphatase activity were observed in peritoneal macrophages of dialysed patients, as compared with the control group. In patients with dialysis-associated peritonitis, the activity of N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase was significantly higher than that observed in the same patients during the complication-free period of the treatment.
