A 48-year-old African lady started peritoneal dialysis in 1994 after transplant failure. After several episodes of peritonitis and hemorrhagic ascites, hemodialysis was resumed in 2003 because of small bowel subocclusion. In 2006, an abdominal CT showed calcifications and dilatation of intestinal loops. Sclerosing peritonitis was diagnosed and she underwent enterolysis and resection of the peritoneal capsule. She remained asymptomatic until 2009 when she presented again with subocclusion. Because of generalized skeletal pain, a bone scan was performed, which showed Tc-99m hydroxy diphosphonate uptake on the peritoneum. The patient is currently on hemodialysis with parenteral nutrition.
