Peritoneal Disorders

Your peritoneum is the tissue that lines your abdominal wall and covers most of the organs in your abdomen. A liquid, peritoneal fluid, lubricates the surface of this tissue.

  • Cancer
  • Complications from peritoneal dialysis

Your doctor may use imaging tests or lab tests to analyze the peritoneal fluid to diagnose the problem. Treatment of peritoneal disorders depends on the cause.

  • Abdominal tap
  • Peritoneal fluid analysis
  • Peritoneal fluid culture
  • Peritonitis
  • Peritonitis - secondary
  • Peritonitis - spontaneous
