Torulopsis glabrata peritonitis occurred in a patient after surgery for a ruptured abdominal viscus. The infection was successfully treated with intraperitoneal amphotericin B alone. Pharmacokinetic information regarding the distribution and clearance of amphotericin B administered by this route is presented, and the clinical manifestations and treatment modalities for T glabrata and Candida peritonitis are reviewed.
