Curvularia infection complicating peritoneal dialysis

Curvularia infection complicating peritoneal dialysis

Southern Medical Journal 81(7): 943-944

A case is reported in a 46-yr-old man who had been receiving continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis for 2 yrs. He noted black material draining from his Tenckhoff catheter and a Curvularia sp. was cultured from peritoneal dialysate (PD). A 7-d course of amphotericin B was given, but the patient developed nausea and abdominal pain. A concurrent urinary tract infection was diagnosed and Curvularia was again isolated from PD.
