Abstract: A case of Campylobacter jejuni peritonitis in a patient being treated with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis is described. The significance of the organism isolated from our patient was initially doubtful because of a rapid defervescence of symptoms with minimal specific antibiotic therapy, lack of a preceding diarrhoeal illness and the time taken to isolate and identify the organism. Serial serum IgM, IgA and IgG antibody estimations clearly showed an acute seroconversion confirming that the strain of C. jejuni isolated was the causative organism in this case.
