Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 51-year-old immunosuppressed man presented with ulcerations of the abdominal wall. Biopsy of the ulcer margin was necessary for the diagnosis of cutaneous cryptococcosis. Since a variety of opportunistic organisms can present with non-specific cutaneous lesions, these infections must be ruled out by tissue diagnosis of all immunosuppressed patients. A review of 22 additional cases is included together with electron microscopic findings.
