Abstract

Neonatal brain abscess is a very rare disease. Despite improvement of survival rate of premature infants due to the development of neonatal intensive therapy, it is still one of the important causes of death or sequelae of neonate. Fungal infection is unusual cause of neonatal brain abscess and the neonatal fungal brain abscess is a secondary result of hematogenous seeding that is rarely discovered primarily. We present a case of incidentally discovered multiple disseminated fungal brain abscess in asymptomatic very low birth weight infant.
