Abstract

A patient with chronic renal failure who is undergoing dialysis or renal transplantation is susceptible to a number of infections. Transient, usually asymptomatic bacteremias occur in a wide variety of dental manipulations, particularly those involving the mucous membranes. Certain bacteremias may cause serious complications in these already compromised patients. Therefore, antimicrobial prophylaxis is essential when these patients undergo bacteremia-causing dental procedures.
