Neisseria sicca peritonitis in a patient maintained on chronic peritoneal dialysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Neisseria sicca, previously classified as a "nonpathogenic" organism, has now been recognized as a cause of many infections, including endocarditis and meningitis. However, it has not been reported as a cause of peritonitis. We present a case of documented N. sicca peritonitis immediately following an episode of Staphylococcus aureus peritonitis in a pediatric chronic peritoneal dialysis (CPD) patient. N. sicca should be considered as a possible pathogen in CPD-associated peritonitis.
