Congenital candidiasis is rare and often benign. We report the case of twins born at 32 weeks’ gestation with different manifestations of congenital candidiasis. One twin was born well though neutropenic, and died from overwhelming sepsis with septic shock at 22 h. The other twin presented with a delayed onset of rash at 2 days, remained well and survived.
