Humicola sp. as a cause of peritoneal dialysis-associated peritonitis
MetadataShow full item record
© 2015 American Society for Microbiology. All Rights Reserved. Peritoneal dialysis is the renal replacement modality used by ~20% of patients with end-stage kidney disease (S. McDonald, P. Clayton, and K. Hurst, p. 6.2- 6.27, in ANZDATA 2012 Annual Report, 35th ed., 2012). A major complication of peritoneal dialysis is the development of peritonitis. We describe a case of Humicola sp. causing peritoneal dialysis (PD)-associated peritonitis, successfully treated with a prolonged course of antifungal therapy.
