Congenital candidiasis is a rare condition and difficult to diagnose. We report a case of severe septic shock leading to death within six days of birth caused by disseminated candidiasis without cutaneous manifestations in a late preterm infant. We speculate that the use of drugs for treatment of gestational toxoplasmosis in a mother colonized by Candida species facilitated this occurrence.
