Non-oclusive mesenteric ischemia as a complication of dialysis

731-732

Clara Giménez Francés, María Encarnación Tamayo Rodríguez, Antonio Albarracín Marín-Blázquez,

We present the case of a 69-year-old male ex-smoker, whose medical background included hypertension, chronic renal failure, atrial fibrillation anticoagulation, and chronic lower limb arterial ischemia. He suffered from abdominal pain associated with nausea and vomiting after a hemodialysis session. The analysis showed C-reactive protein at 7 mg/L, 14,500 leukocytes with neutrophilia, and lactate at 2.8. A computerized axial tomography (CAT) scan was performed and portal pneumatosis as well as a distal ileum segment with intestinal pneumatosis were observed, which was compatible with non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia.
