Chronic kidney disease is defined by pathophysiological processes associated with the progressive loss of GFR. Many patients with the end-stage renal disease need to resort to dialysis methods. Dialysis these patients in ESRD provide an increase in life expectancy and reducing comorbidities. The methods most commonly used in clinical practice are hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. The main problem in patients on peritoneal dialysis is peritonitis. Peritonitis is commonly caused by various microorganisms. The peritonitis of fungal etiology, although infrequent, has high rates of mortality and morbidity. Justification: The project to be conducted at the Hospital of Unicamp Clinical aims to retrospectively analyze the cases of peritonitis fungal etiology in the last 10 years in view of the severity of the symptoms presented and the need to outline an epidemiological profile of fungal diseases in the region understood by the Hospital of the service. Objective: Clinical evaluation of patients with peritonitis Fungal and evaluation of the conditions that led to this situation. Methodology: Descriptive Retrospective Cohort Longitudinal analysis with adult (more than 18 years) patient records accompanied in nephrology discipline in ESRD in peritoneal dialysis who developed at least one episode of fungal etiology of peritonitis between January 2005 to December 2015.
