Microorganisms belonging to the genus Pantoea rarely cause infection in normal hosts, but are common in hospitalized or immunocompromised patients. Pantoea agglomerans has frequently been associated with exogenous sources such as plants, soil, water, and foodstuffs. Until now, only one case of P. agglomerans‐associated peritonitis has been reported in an adult patient undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). We report a case of peritonitis due to P. agglomerans in a 55‐year‐old man with maintenance CAPD. Antibiotic therapy with intraperitoneal cefazolin and gentamicin led to clinical improvement.
