Cutaneous congenital candidiasis in a full-term newborn from an asymptomatic mother


A male infant of 2,900 g was born at term to a 19-year-old primigravida woman who had adequate prenatal care and no major complications detected during the pregnancy.

There was no history of maternal herpes simplex infection and her serologic screening was negative for syphilis.
