Staph. Epi. Peritonitis in CAPD

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Staphylococcus epidermidis is frequently resistant to first‐generation cephalosporins. Although I have generally changed the therapy of S. epidermidis CAPD peritonitis to vancomycin when laboratory reports indicate cephalosporin resistance, it frequently appeared that improvement from the cephalosporin was taking place at the time of antibiotic conversion. Should the antibiotics be changed in this setting?
