PMID:  16132778     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of pregnancy in a 27-year-old woman on peritoneal dialysis is presented. The case report is a detailed description of her course including changes in her peritoneal dialysis regimen and the use of continuous cycling to maximize dialysis adequacy while addressing the patient's recurrent abdominal pain and fullness. Also described is the management of complications including hypertension, gestational diabetes, and premature rupture of membranes. The discussion reviews the diagnosis of pregnancy, factors that may relate to outcome, and a detailed comparison of pregnancy outcomes in patients on dialysis to the general population.
