We report the first case of Streptococcus gordonii-related continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) peritonitis. He is a 69-year-old man with end-stage renal failure due to chronic glomerulonephritis who had been put on CAPD for 1 year. He was successfully treated with a 2-week course of cefazolin. This case highlights the emerging threat that S. gordonii can be the source of infection in patients on CAPD.
