Abstract

Uremic pericarditis in children on chronic hemodialysis represents a difficult management problem, necessitating vigorous medical therapy and often surgical drainage of the pericardial effusion. Standard therapeutic approaches have met with limited success. The successful use of intrapericardial triamcinolone in a 10-year anephric boy on chronic dialysis is reported and accompanied by a description of the technique applied and literature review.
