Abstract

Mycoplasma edwardii (M. edwardii) is an anthropozoonotic microorganism found in the upper respiratory and urogenital tracts of dogs. M. edwardii was one of the microbes isolated from peritoneal fluid of a 10-year-old child diagnosed with polymicrobial peritonitis following a puncture of dialysis tubing by a pet dog. Other unique pathogens representative of canine oral microflora isolated from this patient on peritoneal dialysis were Kingella denitrificans, Actinomycetes species and Capnocytophaga cynodegmi.
