Sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis. This patient had several bouts of peritonitis during the course of her treatment on peritoneal dialysis. She developed partial small bowel obstruction. Abdominal computed tomography revealed a homogeneous mass filling the anterior peritoneum. At laparotomy the mesentery was encased in a "marblelike" fibrotic mass. The patient required long-term home parenteral hyperalimentation for recovery. (From Pusateri and coworkers [3]; with permission.)
