Abstract

Peritoneal dialysis is the method of choice in the treatment of chronic kidney disease in young children. Renal replacement therapy aims to achieve proper development of the child and, if possible, to quickly prepare the patient for kidney transplantation. The decision to start peritoneal dialysis is made on a case-by-case basis; the main criterion is GFR dropping below 15 mL/min/1.73 m2. The authors describe a case of a boy with chronic kidney disease CKD in whom peritoneal dialysis was performed starting from the neonatal period and present the associated challenges and complications
