Rhodotorula rubra peritonitis in a child undergoing intermittent cycling peritoneal dialysis



Rhodotorula rubra peritonitis in a child undergoing intermittent cycling peritoneal dialysis



Journal of Infectious Diseases 157(2): 393-394



A case in a 3-yr-old boy with nephrotic syndrome and on intermittent cycling peritoneal dialysis, is reported. The patient was treated for bacterial peritonitis but subsequent follow-up cultures of peritoneal fluid yielded R. rubra in multiple cultures.
