Onychomycosis is a common condition affecting 5.5% of the population worldwide and represents 20%–40% of all onychopathies and about 30% of cutaneous mycotic infections. It is common in elderly, uncommon in children, and rare in neonates. Onychomycosis is caused by dermatophytes, nondermatophytic molds (NDM), and yeasts. Onychomycosis due to NDM is even rarer in neonates. Here, we report a case of a 3-week-old neonate who was diagnosed as a case of onychomycosis due to Aspergillus species. The neonate was started on topical antifungal amorolfine 5% and improved in 8 weeks.
