Acremonium strictum has been found on many saprotrophic fungi, several plant- pathogenic fungi (Gams ), and on the mycoparasite Mycogone perniciosa. We present a case of a fungal peritonitis caused by Acremonium strictum in patient undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). The most common species in indoor environment are Acremonium strictum and A . charticola. Acremonium strictum is commonly encountered in.
