Clostridium difficile is one of the most common nosocomial pathogens and the cause of pseudomembranous colitis in cases of prior antimicrobial exposure. Extra intestinal manifestations of C. difficile are uncommon and rarely reported. We report the first successfully treated case of catheter-related C. difficile peritonitis in a patient undergoing peritoneal dialysis.
