We report a case of P. yeei CAPD-peritonitis in a patient experiencing repeated episodes of peritonitis. P. yeei, an emerging opportunistic pathogen, takes advantage of specific virulence factors and peculiar circumstances. We discuss the exogenous or endogenous microbial source of the peritonitis and guidelines to decrease its occurrence.
