Abstract

The biocompatibility of dialysis membranes has significantly reduced adverse responses to dialysis, such that nowadays they are rarely reported. We report the case of a patient diagnosed and subsequently treated for thrombocytopenia caused by a dialysis reaction, as an example of a hemostatic disorder mistaken for an immature arteriovenous fistula. The peridialysis pattern of the platelet count helped to confirm the diagnosis. Further studies of the negative effects of dialysis are needed, including risk factors, predictors, treatment, and prevention.
