We report the first case of peritoneal dialysis (PD)-associated peritonitis due to Sporothrix schenckii, a thermally dimorphic black fungus transmitted from epiphytotic disease. The patient presented with PD-associated peritonitis and fungal colonisation inside the PD catheter's lumen after an exposing 'wet contamination' event with a phytopathogen 11 days prior to the onset of infection. The human pathogen and phytopathogen were confirmed the same species by nucleotide sequences of the internal...

Background null The peritoneal capillary endothelium is widely considered to be the most influential structure in dictating the rate of small solute transport (SST) during peritoneal dialysis (PD). PD patients are at significant risk of systemic microcirculatory dysfunction. The relationship between peritoneal and systemic microcirculations in patients new to PD has not been well studied. We hypothesised that for patients on PD for less than 6 months, dysfunction in the systemic microcirculation...

Escherichia coli (E. coli) is the main cause of Gram-negative bacterial peritonitis among peritoneal dialysis patients. According to the 2016 update of the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis Peritonitis Recommendations, drug susceptibilities of specific organisms should be regularly monitored. The aim of this study was to examine the evolution of antimicrobial resistance of E. coli peritonitis from 2006 to 2018. Two hundred and fifty-three episodes of E. coli peritonitis were enrolled...

Background:For patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD), the deleterious effects of high concentrations of dialysate glucose on the peritoneal membrane are well-documented. Systemic effects of peritone...

Background:Peritoneal dialysis (PD) can offer patients more autonomy and flexibility compared with in-center hemodialysis (HD). However, burnout – defined as mental, emotional, or physical exhausti...
