• A case of Candida parapsilosis peritonitis occurred in a patient undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Treatment with oral doses of flucytosine and intravenous doses of miconazole was effective. No interruption in CAPD was necessary, and acceptable flucytosine levels were obtained in the serum and dialysate. This case and information available in the literature suggest that Candida peritonitis can be treated effectively with antimicrobial agents that are well tolerated by the patient, and removal of the dialysis catheter is not always necessary for cure.
