Abstract

Malassezia sp. require exogenous lipid for growth and can cause disseminated infection in neonates requiring intravenous lipid infusions. Usually, Malassezia infection in neonates presents as fungemia or hematogenous dissemination into bone or lungs. We present a presumed case of Malassezia liver abscess associated with lipid infusion via a mispositioned umbilical venous catheter.
