Trichophyton rubrum is a dermatophyte that causes tinea infection in adults and children but infection is surprisingly rare in the preterm infant. We present two cases of T. rubrum infection in preterm infants, in which mother-to-child transmission appears to have occurred. We describe the clinical features, differential diagnosis, appropriate investigation and management of this condition.
