Abstract

A patient, who had recently undergone a laparoscopic ovarian cyst operation, receiving nightly automated peritoneal dialysis treatment, was discovered to have peritonitis due to Pseudomonas putida. She was successfully treated with a 21-day course of intraperitoneat ceftazidime and gentamicin, without needing to remove the dialysis catheter. No recurrence was observe over 3 months of follow-up.
