Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 67-year-old male patient in haemodialysis having a history of high blood pressure and a chronic kidney disease due to nephroangiosclerosis. He began haemodialysis in 1989 and a kidney transplant in 1990 and has a post-transplant diabetes mellitus. The article discusses the development of infections in haemodialysis patients due to changes in their immune response associated with kidney failure.
