"Pillon Miner, he's Human—he was the first one to find out that the amphistaff polyps in that grove over there are mature enough to attack. Peritonitis. He's dying."
―Jacen Solo[src]

Peritonitis was an inflammation of the peritoneum, the thin tissue that lines the inner wall of the abdomen and covers most of the abdominal organs. Pillon Miner, a slave, was suffering from peritonitis after being injured by amphistaffs in 28 ABY.
