Abstract

Infectious peritonitis is a common complication of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Only one case of CAPD-related peritonitis due to Penicillium sp has previously been reported. We present a second case in which fungal colonies were observed on the inner surface of the CAPD catheter. The infection was successfully treated with catheter removal and intravenous amphotericin B.
