Abstract

The term "peritoneal sclerosis" encompasses a vast range of peritoneal alterations, from the manifestations of low clinical impact constantly associated with peritoneal dialysis, to dramatic thickening of the peritoneal membrane, which is rare, but often life-threatening. The epidemiology, pathology, etiopathogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnostic criteria, therapy and prevention of peritoneal sclerosis are reviewed.
