By Ziauddin Khan, Khaled Al-Obaid, Suhail Ahmad, Amal Abdel Ghani, Leena Joseph and Rachel Chandy

Abstract

A case of Acremonium kiliense peritonitis is described. Diagnosis was established by repeated isolation of the fungus from peritoneal dialysate and by its identification on the basis of morphological characteristics and sequencing of internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions of ribosomal DNA (rDNA). This report and available literature suggest that A. kiliense may have a greater clinical significance than hitherto recognized
