Microbiology of Peritonitis in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients with Multiple Episodes
Peritoneal Dialysis International, 06/01/2012
Nessim SJ et al. – In contrast to previous data, the authors did not find a high proportion of patients with multiple peritonitis episodes caused by the same organism. Coagulase–negative Staphylococcus (CNS) was the organism most likely to cause peritonitis more than once in a given patient, and a prior CNS peritonitis was associated with an increased risk of CNS peritonitis within the subsequent year.
