Encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis: a rare, serious but potentially curable complication of peritoneal dialysis–experience of a referral centre in Germany
Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation, 06/26/2012

The time of first clinical symptoms consistent with EPS to requirement of surgery is very short. Earlier diagnosis of the disease is mandatory, even in asymptomatic patients.
