Abstract

We describe a patient with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) who developed depression over the period of dialysis initiation. Depression is an extremely common but underrecognized disorder in the dialysis population, which is one of the rationales for this case report. Here we present the epidemiology, mechanisms for diagnosis, associations with medical morbidity, and treatment modalities specifically for patients on dialysis.
