• Torulopsis glabrata causes an increasingly frequent infection in immunocompromised adults. In a 1,910-g, 36-week, small-for-gestational-age neonate, T glabrata caused necrotizing enterocolitis and endophthalmitis. The fungus was not grown from cultures obtained from four blood specimens but was seen microscopically in methenamine silver-stained sections of resected bowel.
