INTRODUCTION Coagulase-negative staphylococcus (CoNS) is the most common pathogen in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD)-associated peritonitis. There is no well-organized, standardized database for CoNS, and few studies have used gene sequencing in reporting species distribution in CAPD peritonitis. In the present study, we used 3 housekeeping genes to evaluate the prevalence of CoNS isolated from CAPD peritonitis episodes and to estimate the accuracy of, and the characteristic… CONTINUE READING
