Abstract

During the past two years our laboratory has isolated Propionibacterium - an anaerobic Gram-positive rod - on 40 occasions from the drainage fluid of 25 patients on CAPD and eight on IPD. Most patients had no symptoms and the fluid was sent for culture after treatment of peritonitis, during training period, and occasionally because it was cloudy. No association was found with patients' age, length on dialysis, or previous peritonitis episodes. The only statistically significant association (P=0.033) was the recent (
