Abstract

Hydrothorax as a result of pleuroperitoneal communication is an uncommon complication in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients. CT peritoneography is a useful method for evaluating a wide variety of complications due to CAPD. We report a case of pleuroperitoneal communication with specific imaging features on multidetector-row CT peritoneography (MDCT).
