We report a case of fungal retinal vasculitis in a 32 week gestational age, 1200 g premature infant detected during routine screening for retinopathy of prematurity at 78 days of age. The patient subsequently developed sepsis with perinephric abscess but responded rapidly to systemic therapy. Fortuitous detection of retinal vasculitis as the first evidence of a systemic fungal infection in an immunocompetent and asymptomatic infant has not, to our knowledge, been previously reported.
