Dialysate leakage represents one of the major noninfectious complications of peri­toneal dialysis (PD). In some instances, dialysate leakage may lead to discontinuation of the technique. Despite its importance, the incidence, risk factors, management, and outcome of dia­lysate leakage are poorly characterized in the literature. Here, we report two PD patients who pre­sented with painless scrotal swelling. Computerized peritoneography confirmed the diagnosis of processus vaginalis hernia that was treated conservatively.
