Non-tuberculous mycobacteria are a rare but serious cause of peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis. There are no clear guidelines for treating non-tuberculous mycobacteria peritoneal dialysis-associated infections. It has been recommended that at least two antibiotics be given for a prolonged period and peritoneal catheter should be removed. This paper describes the clinical course and treatment of a patient with M. chelonae peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis and reviews the previously published cases.
