This paper describes two episodes of hemoperitoneum complicating continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). One patient developed bloody dialysate during an attack of acute cholecystitis, while a second developed this sign immediately after colonoscopy. We found no previous reports which have associated these conditions with bloody dialysate. This paper reviews other causes of spontaneous hemoperitoneum and discusses the significance of bloody dialysate during CAPD.
