Abstract: Intrauterine candidal infection is a rare condition. But in can occur through transplacental route or by ascending infection from the vagina. Skin lesions, which may be present at birth, are characterized by erythema, moist erosions and vesiculopustules with erythematous base. The diagnosis is confirmed by identification and isolation of Candidia albicans with KOH preparation and culture of the material obtained from active lesions. We are reporting a case of intrauterine candidial infection in a term neonate from Udaiyarpuram TK, in Tamil Nadu, India.
