Candida species is the third most common organism responsible for bloodstream infections in neonatal intensive care units; we report the case of a newborn with a positive blood culture for Candida parapsilosis infection from a central venous catheter. After failure of fluconazole therapy, she was treated with caspofungin, which proved to be safe and effective.
