The article presents a case report of a 65-year-old obese woman presented with acute deterioration and was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. Based on the medical examination, the woman is required to undergo hemodialysis because she has chronic kidney disease. In addition, she was referred from her dialysis center because of hemorrhage from the cathether exit site.
