We report a four-year old Saudi boy who was on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis using a Y-connector system. He developed peritonitis without associated exit-site infection. Xanthomonas maltophilia was grown from the dialysis effluent. The organism was sensitive to netalmycin, tetracycline and co-trimoxazole. The patient responded to treatment with co-trimoxazole given for a total of ten days. However, he presented with a second episode of peritonitis and the same organism was grown again from the dialysis effluent. Due to intractable infection, the PD catheter had to be removed during the second episode of peritonitis.
