Peritonitis is well recognized as the Achilles tendon of peritoneal dialysis (PD). Reoccurrence of peritonitis due to the same organism, defined as either repeat or relapsing peritonitis under the 2005 guidelines by the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis, often results in PD technique failure. Rothia dentocariosa, a low-virulent human oropharynx commensal, is a rarely reported pathogen in human infection, particularly infective endocarditis. R. dentocariosa PD-related peritonitis is exceedingly uncommon yet potentially results in repeat or relapsing peritonitis which requires catheter removal. We report a case of R. dentocariosa repeat and relapsing peritonitis in a PD patient who was treated successfully with antimicrobial therapy.
