Abstract

Two extremely premature infants died as a result of congenital Candida glabrata infection, and their placentas and umbilical cords were free of macroscopic Candida nodules. Because non-Candida albicans Candida infections are less likely to produce necrotic foci, we should not exclude Candida infections in the absence of macroscopic nodules on the placenta and umbilical cord.
