Peritonitis is one of the most common and important complications in patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Fungal peritonitis isreported in 4-8% of peritonitis episodes. Fungal peritonitis due to Paecilomyces species is not common. We report a case of CAPD peritonitis due to P. varioti. We immediately removed the CAPD catheter and IV amphotericin was administered for 4 weeks along with temporary hemodialytic support followed by successful catheter reinsertion.
