ABSTRACT
Peritonitis is one of the major complications of CAPD(continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis). Recently, multidrug-resistant organisms, such as vancomycin-resistant enterococcus(VRE) have been rarely reported by the pathogen as of CAPD-associated peritonitis. But, there is limited information on choices of effective therapy for VRE peritonitis in patients undergoing CAPD. We present a pediatric case of successful treatment of CAPD-associated peritonitis due to VRE with linezolid, and review of the literature.
Key words: Vancomycin-resistant Enterococci | CAPD | Peritonitis | Linezolid
