[Calcific periarthritis in patients with endstage renal disease on chronic dialysis] Academic Article uri icon


  • 2 patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing dialysis developed calcific periarthritis. A 25-year-old man on hemodialysis developed arthritis of 2 right metacarpophalangeal joints and a 65-year-old man on chronic ambulatory peritoneal dialysis suffered from pain and tenderness in the left buttock. Treatment with nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs in the first case and periarticular injection of methylprednisolone (Depomedrol) in the second were successful.
