OBJECTIVE: To describe a case of extensively drug-resistant (XDR) Acinetobacter baumannii peritoneal dialysis (PD)–associated peritonitis successfully treated with combination antibiotics, including intraperitoneal polymyxin B, with retention of the catheter. CASE SUMMARY: A 54-year-old woman with end-stage renal disease receiving chronic PD and recent antibiotic and hospital exposure presented with abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. She was found to have XDR A. baumannii PD peritonitis…

Newer antibiotics for the treatment of peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis
TLDR
The potential use of newer antibiotics with activities against drug-resistant Gram-positive bacteria have been developed in the treatment of drug- resistant bacterial peritonitis in PD patients is discussed.
Outcomes of Acinetobacter Peritonitis in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients: A Multicenter Registry Analysis
TLDR
The odds of catheter removal, hemodialysis transfer, and death were higher with Pseudomonas, other gram-negative, fungal, and polymicrobial peritonitis than with Acinetobacterperitonitis.

TLDR
The ISPD 2022 updated recommendations have revised and clarified definitions for refractory peritonitis, relapsing peritonritis, peritonopathy-associated catheter removal, PD-associated haemodialysis transfer, peritoneitis-associated death and peritonococcal dialysis-associated hospitalisation.
Clinical Use of Polymyxin B.
Polymyxin B is another clinically available polymyxin that has re-emerged in clinical practice to treat infections caused by multi-drug (MDR) or extensively-drug-resistant (XDR) Gram-negative

TLDR
Recommendations under the auspices of the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis (ISPD) were first published in 1983 and revised in 1993, 1996, 2000, 2005, and 2010 are revised.

TLDR
It is hypothesized that the case of a 57-year-old patient with end-stage renal disease due to AA amyloidosis may well illustrate this principle, despite the negative repeat culture, as Acinetobacter species and several other unique gramnegative bacteria are capable of producing betalactamases when subjected to an inducing beta-lactam antibiotic.
Acinetobacter peritonitis in patients receiving continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis.
TLDR
Unlike pseudomonal or fungal peritonitis associated with CAPD, infection due to Acinetobacter species is generally responsive to antimicrobials alone.

TLDR
It is suggested that antibiotic lock therapy in the treatment of refractory peritonitis can be an effective method without catheter removal.
Acinetobacter co-infection and coagulase-negative Staphylococcus: case report and literature review
TLDR
A case of peritonitis caused by co-infection with Acinetobacter species and coagulase-negative staphylococci, which resulted in patient dropout and mortality is presented.
Predictors, treatment, and outcomes of non-Pseudomonas Gram-negative peritonitis.
TLDR
It is shown that NPGN peritonitis is a frequent, serious complication of peritoneal dialysis, which is frequently associated with significant risks, including death, and its cure with antibiotics alone is less likely when multiple organisms are involved.
Ampicillin and Sulbactam Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics in Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD)
TLDR
The fixed combination antibiotic ampicillin/sulbactam may provide a new, safe, and effective method of treating dialysis-related bacterial peritonitis by providing satisfactory inhibitory and bactericidal antibiotic titers for most organisms in dialysate at 6 h but not 24 h.

TLDR
The development or discovery of new therapies, well-controlled clinical trials of existing antimicrobial regimens and combinations, and greater emphasis on the prevention of health care-associated transmission of multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter infection are essential.
