Rights and Permissions

Edema is a cardinal feature of the nephrotic syndrome and sometimes merits independent treatment. The use of diuretics is usually sufficient in the treatment of edema. Ultrafiltration (UF) may sometimes be needed in diuretic-resistant states. The use of UF for steroid-resistant nephrotic edema is scarce in children. We report a child with steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome with diuretic-resistant nephrotic edema treated successfully using acute peritoneal dialysis as a means of UF.
