Abstract

Invasive Candida infections (ICI) have been associated with neurodevelopmental impairment or death in human pre-term neonates. Candidiasis in nonhuman primates is seen mostly in immunosuppressed animals, and ICI is not commonly reported. Here, we report a case of Candida albicans-associated ICI in a pre-term neonatal rhesus macaque.
