We present a case of CAPD peritonitis caused by zygomycetes infection. A 46-year-old male patient presented with refractory peritonitis requiring catheter removal. He had persistence of fever and an ultrasonography abdomen done revealed loculated collections. An initial pigtail drainage followed by open laparotomy was performed. Intra-operative peritoneal and omental biopsy revealed large areas of necrosis with broad aseptate fungal hyphae consistent with zygomycosis. He was managed with 3 gm of intravenous amphotericin and is doing well at 6 months of follow-up.
