Peritonitis caused by Candida albicans: Rare presentation of a refluxing ureteral stump

Abstract

Ada Molina Caballero, Alberto Pérez Martínez, Sara Hernández Martín

Ureteral stump syndrome is a medical condition caused by a refluxing distal ureteral remnant left after nephrectomy. Fungal colonization of the ureteral stump is uncommon and distant site infection is exceptional. We present a unique case of fungal peritonitis in a 13-year-old boy who had a right lower-moiety heminephro-ureterectomy at age three with a ureteral stump that served as reservoir for Candida resulting in the subsequent spontaneous fungal passage to the peritoneum.
