We report onychomycosis caused by Candida parapsilosis in a 35-day-old premature infant. To our knowledge, this represents the youngest instance of an isolated lesion of the nail plate without involvement of glabrous skin, caused by C. parapsilosis in this age group to be reported in the literature.
