Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG), described in the 1980s, is a procedure universally used to ensure enteral feeding in patients who retain digestive tract function, but who cannot eat solid or liquid foods due to any medical or surgical condition. The performance of PEG in patients with peritoneal dialysis (PD) remains controversial, being considered an absolute contraindication for many authors, taking into account the high risk of morbidity and mortality associated with intraperitoneal infection. We present the case of a 70-year-old patient, with a history of chronic end-stage renal disease with a peritoneal dialysis catheter, who required PEG; and we propose a management protocol for this type of patient
