A premature newborn born to a mother with candidal vaginitis developed congenital invasive candidiasis. The isolates of Candida albicans from the bloodstream and the oral cavity of the neonate and the vagina of the mother shared a common genotype, which provide direct evidence of the association of congenital candidiasis with candidal vaginitis in the mother.
