Abstract

Objective: To call attention to the worldwide increase in tuberculosis and to review the disease in peritoneal dialysis patients. Data Sources: Recent epidemiological publications. Data Extraction: Epidemiological data summarized in tables and diagnostic and therapeutic recommendations reviewed. Conclusions: Tuberculosis is on the rise worldwide. Multiple drug-resistant strains are emerging, causing therapeutic problems. The role of atypical mycobacterial infections in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) is reviewed. Early diagnosis of cases and thorough chemotherapy are advocated.
