By Paula de Castro Menezes Candido, Andrea de Freitas Werner, Izabela Machado Flores Pereira, Breno Assunção Matos, Rudolf Moreira Pfeilsticker and Raul Silva Filho


Sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis, a rare cause of bowel obstruction, was described as a complication associated with peritoneal dialysis which is much feared because of its severity. The authors report a case where radiological findings in association with clinical symptoms have allowed for a noninvasive diagnosis of sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis, emphasizing the high sensitivity and specificity of computed tomography to demonstrate the characteristic findings of such a condition
