FORMENTO-MARIN, Natalia et al. Dress syndrome: allergic reaction after placement of a peritoneal catheter. Enferm Nefrol [online]. 2020, vol.23, n.2, pp.207-210.  Epub 03-Ago-2020. ISSN 2255-3517.

Clinical case:

Patient suffering from Dress Syndrome after placement of the peritoneal catheter. A very few cases of allergic reaction to the peritoneal catheter have been reported in the literature. Initially, the use of a prophylactic antibiotic used in the operating room was suspected as a cause, but after suffering an exacerbation of symptoms one week after implantation at the patient’s home, the possibility that the catheter was the origin of the condition was raised. Then, the patient was admitted for monitoring and administration of medication with significant clinical improvement. The care plan was focused on the acute resolution of the allergic process and on assisting the technique until the patient was able to perform it autonomously. Finally, the clinical picture was attributed to a Dress Syndrome caused by allopurinol.


After a bibliographic review and in the absence of evidence, it was decided not to remove the catheter and treat the clinical picture, which was resolved, and the patient could start the technique at home autonomously.
