Mucocutaneous infection with Candida spp. in infants ranges from such common conditions as thrush and diaper dermatitis to serious diseases with potential for systemic involvement. High-risk infants with mucosal or skin involvement with Candida spp. much more likely develop into systemic candidiasis. Consideration should be given to obtaining systemic cultures, skin biopsy and treating with systemic antifungal therapy in many such cases. We report a case of mucocutaneous candidiasis in a baby with extremely very low birth weight, who was treated with oral fluconazole.
