Two cases of congenital cutaneous candidiasis are presented in order to call attention to this rarely recognized and infrequently reported condition. Clinical features and appropriate cultures are useful in differentiating the lesions from other more common dermatoses of the neonatal period. Microscopic examination of the placenta may disclose fungal(More)

Even methods designed to characterize the spatial(More)
