Visible fungal colonization on peritoneal dialysis catheter is a rare complication and it was not reported yet in Korea. We here report a case of Alternaria spp. colonization on peritoneal dialysis catheter without peritonitis. A 58-year-old man on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis for 2 years, noticed 3-4 mm sized two black-brown immobile fungal colonization plaque on peritoneal catheter lumen (15 cm distal from catheter exit site). The dialysate effluent was clear and culture for fungus and bacteria was negative. Peritoneal catheter was removed and culture from the plaque revealed saprophytic fungus, Alternaria species. The catheter removal alone was sufficient for the treatment. He is on hemodialysis thereafter.
