Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Clin Microbiol Infect ABSTRACT: We report a case of viral peritonitis caused by coxsackievirus B1 in a 79-year-old male undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), and review the English language literature. Clinicians should be aware of viral peritonitis in patients on CAPD presenting with a viral syndrome and mononuclear peritoneal dialysis effluent. Currently, viral diagnostic tests are available to confirm the diagnosis and avoid unnecessary treatment with antibiotics.
