Onychomycosis refers to the nondermatophytic and dermatophytic involvement of nails. Literature suggests its increasing prevalence from the younger to the older age group. In addition to the important clinical consequences that the infection holds, it also acts as a reservoir of infection. We, hereby, report a case of a 3-year-old immunocompetent child with single nail onychomycosis due to Aspergillus niger. To the best of our knowledge, this is the youngest reported case of onychomycosis due to A. niger.
