Isolation of Cardiobacterium hominis from the peritoneal fluid of a patient on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis.

Abstract

Cardiobacterium hominis, an uncommon cause of bacterial endocarditis, is rarely implicated in infections outside the vascular system. We report the isolation of C. hominis from the peritoneal fluid of a patient on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis with a presentation suggestive of peritonitis but no evidence of infective endocarditis.
