When an infant presents in the delivery room with macular and papular skin lesions covering the trunk, extremities, and/or skin folds, the neonatal nurse practitioner covering deliveries must be aware of possible skin lesion differential diagnoses. Among these is congenital cutaneous candidiasis, a rare, usually benign skin infection. If this condition is recognized early, unnecessary testing and treatment of newborns who present with these symptoms might be avoided.
