dc.description.abstract In order to determine the rate and factors related to peritonitis in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients treated at a hospital in Lima, Peru; a retrospective single-cohort study was conducted during the period 2014-2016. All patients diagnosed with chronic renal disease from the PD program at the Cayetano Heredia Hospital were included. The incidence rate of peritonitis was estimated and a bivariate analysis was per-formed to assess related factors. A total of 73 patients were included. The incidence rate of peritonitis was 0.60 episodes per patient per year; 46.7% of the cultures were positive and the most common isolated germ was S. aureus. Lower albumin and hematocrit values were found to be related to peritonitis. In this study, the incidence rate of peritonitis and negative cultures were found to be higher than the interna-tionally estimated rate. en_US
