Abstract:  Invasive fungal infections in children have increased in recent years, coinciding with greater survival of preterm neonates and children with immunodeficiencies, more intense chemotherapy regimens, and greater use of stem cell and solid organ transplantation. We describe a case of an immunosuppressed neonate who developed cutaneous Exserohilum rostratum infection.
