Abstract:

The incidence of peritonitis depends on factors such as age, educational and financial background, environment and surrounding climate of the patients but the outcome depends on the organisms isolated. Among the several factors that may contribute to or enhance microbial pathogenicity is the extracellular slime (biofilm) produced by certain organisms on surfaces. All patients undergoing CAPD are included in the study after taking their informed consent. The most common organism isolated was gram negative bacilli (44%) followed by gram positive cocci (29%). 7% of isolates were fungal. A single non tuberculous mycobacterium was also isolated. A.baumannii (20.8%) predominated among gram negative bacilli followed by E.coli (10.4%). Among the gram positive cocci CoNS (19.2%) was the most common. S. aureus was isolated in 6.4% of the dialysates.
