Formatted Abstract/Summary
Background: This review of the ANZDATA Australian Peritonitis Registry examines the microbiology, treatment and outcomes of peritonitis from 1/10/03– 31/12/05. Overall, 3656 patients received peritoneal dialysis (PD), with 2475 episodes of peritonitis reported in 1425 patients.

Conclusion: These results are remarkably similar to the pilot peritonitis survey in 2002. Vancomycin continues to be used commonly despite a low MRSA rate. A substantial number of patients are lost from PD to hemodialysis as a result of peritonitis.
