Fungal peritonitis is an uncommon condition which is associated with high morbidity and mortality in patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). It is associated with several complications and many of the patients who develop this condition are unable to resume CAPD treatment and have to shift to haemodialysis. Here we report the rare occurrence of fungal peritonitis due to Aspergillus niger in a patient on CAPD.
