We report the case of a girl with chronic renal insufficiency in ambulatory chronic peritoneal dialysis program, who presented acute hydrothorax in the right side. Video-assisted thoracoscopic pleurodesis with tetracycline was made, reinitiating peritoneal dialysis after six weeks. No evidenced of recurrence at third and sixth month controls. Frequency of presentation, therapeutic and diagnosis methods are discussed.(Rev Med Hered 2007;18:106-109).

Keywords : Hydrothorax; chronic ambulatory peritoneal dyalisis complications; end-stage renal disease; children; pleurodesis.
