Abstract

Infections are today by far the most common complication affecting patients with chronic kidney disease and particularly those undergoing chronic haemodialysis. Numerous antimicrobial-resistant pathogens have emerged among patients with chronic kidney disease. These patients are hospitalized with greater frequency than the general population and the number of hospitalizations has been shown to correlate with higher infection rates. This review will briefly discuss the most common infections in patients undergoing chronic haemodialysis, the clinical relevance of antimicrobial resistance in these patients, and their therapeutic options.
