Congenital cutaneous candidiasis is an uncommon and benign infection presenting at birth or within 6 days of life in neonates exposed to candida in utero. It presents with generalized erythematous macules, papules, vesicles and pustules with or without systemic symptoms. We describe a full term newborn child with congenital cutaneous candidiasis born to an asymptomatic mother. Awareness of this condition is necessary to make an early diagnosis and differentiate from other neonatal infections.
