Özet

We report a case of Candida lusitania peritonitis in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. Since fluconazole therapy was not successful in this patient, the peritoneal catheter was removed and antifungal therapy continued, and the patient was then converted to haemodialysis. This treatment protocol was successful. We suggest that early peritoneal catheter removal should be considered in such cases.
