The article discusses the treatment of a 43-year-old man having an end-stage renal disease. Accordingly, magnetic resonance imaging scans have been done, which showed lobulated ascites in the omentum and so encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis (EPS) was diagnosed. EPS is said to be a rare though serious complication of peritoneal dialysis, which has a mortality of more than 30%.

    BACKGROUND. Contrast media are widely used in urogenital radiology. The ideal contrast agent should be totally inert, causing no interactions with organism, and with a rapid and complete excretion. Adverse reactions could occur after using any type of contrast media. Contrast enhanced procedures...
