BACKGROUND: In this study, association of between drop-out and inflamation were investigated in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients with end-stage renal failure (ESRF) .METHOD: Of the 150 ESRF patients who were started with or switched to PD, 46 drop-out patients were evaluated retrospectively. Patients demographic characteristics, drop-out and inflamation markers as albumin levels, CRP levels and fibrinogen levels were researched. The laboratory results were taken as the average of the last three months.RESULTS: In the drop-out group mean decrease in serum albumin and mean increase in C-reactive protein and fibrinogen was significantly different from the other group (p<0.001, p<0.001, p<0.05, respectively). When demographic characteristics, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension status was evaluated, the difference was not significant (p> 0.05).CONCLUSİON : Infllammation markers should be used to asses the drop-out of peritoneal dialysis patients.
