Mechanical malfunction of peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheters remains the most common non-infective complication of peritoneal dialysis. Failure in conservative measures often results in surgical correction, which is often invasive, time-consuming and may require the patient to temporarily switch to haemodialysis while waiting for post-operative recovery and wound healing. This article describes two methods of PD catheter exchange that are minimally invasive, time- and cost-efficient; and most im...
Rhabdomyolysis is a syndrome with a wide range of symptoms ranging from asymptomatic raised serum creatinine kinase to life-threatening metabolic disturbances and acute kidney injury. A careful history taking and high clinical suspicion on drug-drug interaction are crucial to identify the etiology of rhabdomyolysis. Here, we present a case of rhabdomyolysis due to a rare drug-to-drug interaction of simvastatin, diltiazem, and cyclosporin in a patient with IgA nephropathy. Early renal replacement...

A percutaneous renal biopsy is an essential tool for diagnosis, prognosis, and choice of treatment for primary and secondary renal disease, as well as transplant kidney. It is a core procedure of nephrologists done under ultrasound-guided. The lower pole of the left kidney is our usual approach as the risk of injury to the major vessels will be very minimal. However, the presence of renal cyst at the lower pole of the kidney may increase the difficulty of renal biopsy as there is the possibility...

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem inflammatory disorder that commonly affecting the lungs. However, isolated renal sarcoidosis without lung involvement is a rare condition. Sarcoidosis is known to cause kidney involvement via different mechanisms. Hypercalcemia and hypercalciuria may trigger renal stones formation and result in obstructive uropathy. Sarcoidosis can also cause interstitial nephritis with or without granuloma formation in the kidneys. The true incidence of renal involvement in sarcoido...

Despite optimal control of serum phosphate level being imperative to avoid undesirable health outcomes, hyperphosphataemia is a highly prevalent mineral abnormality among the dialysis population. This study aimed to determine factors associated with hyperphosphatemia among hemodialysis patients in Malaysia. Multiple linear regression analysis was used to ascertain the possible factors that influence serum phosphate levels. A total of 217 hemodialysis patients were recruited. Hyperphosphatemia wa...

Actinomyces odontolyticus is a gram-positive bacillus, usually found in oropharynx, gastrointestinal tract and urogenital tract as human commensal flora. Infection caused by this organism is rare but may occur in an immunocompromised patient. This organism has been known difficult to be cultured. We reported a case of 60 years old woman, on regular hemodialysis for the past 3 years, who had Actinomyces odontolyticus bacteremia due to catheter-related bloodstream infection. She was treated with a...
