Core Tip Spontaneous fungal peritonitis (SFP) in patients with cirrhosis is associated with high in-hospital mortality rate of 33.3% to 100% and 1-mo mortality rate of 50% to 73.3%. In our systematic review of the literature, despite such high mortality rates, the condition is under diagnosed and antifungal therapy is underutilized; 33.3% to 81.8% SFP patients received anti-fungal therapy. High clinical suspicion, new methods of early diagnosis and empiric treatment in critically ill patients with peritonitis may improve outcomes.
