A 61-year-old hypertensive woman on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) with a swan neck Tenckhoff catheter for the past 2 years undergoing four exchanges/day, and on anti-tuberculous treatment presented with poor drainage of the dialysate effluent for 5 days... Fungal culture on Sabauraud's agar showed slow-growing spreading colonies brownish in color... Chlamydospores were smooth walled and borne singly, identifying them as Paecilomyces puntonii (Figure 1)... After 2 months, using a laparoscopic method, a Tenck-hoff swan neck double cuff catheter was reimplanted as there were no adhesions... The genus Paecilomyces may be distinguished from closely related Penicillium by having long, slender, divergent phialides and colonies that are never typically green... Incidence of fungal peritonitis in India may be found in as many as 24% of cases of peritonitis... The risk factors for fungal peritonitis in peritoneal dialysis are prolonged usage of antibiotics, and previous bacterial peritonitis... Catheter removal immediately after fungi are identified by microscopy or culture is recommended... None declared.

SFS120F1: (A) Chlamydospore and (B) Conidiophore. Microscopy depicting filamentous fungi Paecilomyces puntonii (lacto phenol cotton blue stain).The presence of whorl-like arrangement of conidiogenous cells and conidiophores borne singly are characteristic features.

Mentions: Fungal culture on Sabauraud's agar showed slow-growing spreading colonies brownish in color. Lactophenol Cotton Blue mount revealed conidiophores on simple bearing whorls of conidiogenous cells which were swollen. Chlamydospores were smooth walled and borne singly, identifying them as Paecilomyces puntonii (Figure 1).Fig. 1.
