Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) is a useful and practical modality for the treatment of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). In the properly selected patient this method is well-tolerated with minimal complications. We report a case of intermittent massive genital edema secondary to patent processus vaginalis in a patient receiving CAPD. The diagnosis of patent processus vaginalis, which was strongly suggested by the intermittent nature of the symptoms, was confirmed by computerized tomography (CT) peritoneography.
