Abstract

Fungal peritonitis is an unusual but severe complication of continuous peritoneal dialysis. The role of 1,3-β-D-glucan is unknown in early diagnosis and in treatment monitoring of peritoneal candidiasis. This case report shows the utility of 1,3-β-D-glucan monitoring in management of Candida peritonitis in a child undergoing continuous peritoneal dialysis.
