Abstract

Systemic candidiasis is becoming more common in the neonatal unit as the survival of extremely premature infants increases. Central nervous system (CNS) involvement occurs in 64% of infants with systemic infection. Real-time ultrasonography is useful in the diagnosis of CNS involvement and its sequelae as well as in monitoring the efficacy of therapeutic interventions. A patient with extensive CNS involvement is presented. Ultrasonographic findings are described and correlated with neuropathological examination of the brain.
