Spontaneous (Primary) Candida peritonitis

Received13 Jun 1994
Accepted17 Oct 1994


A 49-year-old female presented with abdominal pain and ascites. Subsequent investigations revealed Candida albicans in the ascitic fluid without evidence of systemic candidiasis or a source of local infection in another site. Additional studies revealed no evident underlying immunological disorder and the gastrointestinal tract was intact. Therapy with amphotericin B led to resolution of abdominal pain and ascites with no recurrence.
