Few cystic fibrosis (CF) cases in Taiwan have been published. We report a case of 2.5-month-old male infant presented recurrent infection, failure to thrive, and nutritional deficiency dermatitis initially. Sweat chloride test confirmed the diagnosis at 4 months old. We highlight that CF should always be the differential diagnosis of patient with failure to thrive and recurrent pulmonary infections.
