Scrotal edema may develop during continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). The two etiologic mechanisms are peritoneo-scrotal communication through a patent processus vaginalis or extravasation of dialysate through a defect of abdominal wall. We report two cases of scrotal edema due to inguinal hernia by peritoneo-scrotal communication during CAPD. The etiology of scrotal edema was confirmed by peritoneal scintigraphy and/or computed tomography. Scrotal edema due to inguinal hernia was completely resolved by a surgical repair of hernia and did not recur despite of resumption of peritoneal dialysis.
Key Words: Inguinal hernia, Testicular hydrocele, Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis
