Case Study Name: Clear Drainage from Groin 

Case Outline:

A 40-year-old woman with a history of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, sarcoidosis and a previous kidney transplant presented to the emergency department complaining of clear drainage from her left groin. Three days earlier, a femoral hemodialysis line had been placed in order to perform plasmapheresis. The procedure performed (because of antibody rejection of her transplanted kidney) was accomplished without complications. In the emergency department, she denied pain, fever, chills or signs of inflammation around the site. The patient reported and demonstrated that the drainage could be controlled temporarily when supine and with direct pressure. However, it would quickly resume with standing or walking.
