Abstract

Introduction:

is a rare cause of peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis.

Case presentation:

A 66-year-old male had end-stage renal disease on peritoneal dialysis treatment for 30 months. He developed exit-site leak with infection. Diphtheroids were isolated and considered initially as skin commensals. Dialysis treatment was suspended and on reinstitution he developed peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis. The organism isolated from the peritoneal dialysis fluid was .

Conclusion:

This case was treated successfully with peritoneal dialysis catheter removal and oral amoxicillin.
