Relapsing peritonitis is usually attributable to persistent catheter infection, assuming that the appropriate antibiotic is used to treat each time and that intraabdominal pathology has been ruled out. Removal of the peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheter frequently is curative. We describe here a case in which partial removal of a presternal catheter resulted in resolution of relapsing peritonitis.
