Nail dystrophy in congenital cutaneous candidiasis.
Congenital cutaneous candidiasis (CCC) is usually a benign condition characterized by various skin manifestations and is rarely associated with nail changes. We report a premature infant with CCC who developed dystrophy of all 20 nails at about 1 month of age. Nail dystrophy due to Candida albicans in the young infant may be differentiated from other congenital or hereditary nail malformations by appearance, recovery of the organism in nail culture, and complete resolution over a period of several months.
