Abstract

A 65-year-old man on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis was admitted with peritonitis. Empirical antibiotic therapy was initiated, and Raoultella planticola was identified in the peritoneal fluid culture. We treated the patient with intraperitoneally administered ciprofloxacin and ceftazidime according to the antibiotic susceptibility. His condition improved, and he was well treated with a 2-week antibiotic course.
