A 74-year-old patient who has developed fecal incontinence following continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) is presented. Incontinence was caused by elevated intra-abdominal pressure during peritoneal dialysis, which correlated with the volume of dialysate and position of the patient. The lowest pressure was found in the recumbent position. A change of dialysis schedule to continuous cycler peritoneal dialysis (CCPD) with "dry day" resulted in a disappearance of the symptoms.
