ABSTRACT: This article presents the case of a 73-year-old man who was referred to the dermatology clinic for evaluation of suspected, rapidly progressing, skin cancers. After biopsies, it was discovered that the patient had cutaneous cryptoccocosis. The typical cyrptoccocal course of infection is discussed as well as the treatment protocols. This patient's infection was anything but typical; most cases of cutaneous disease are found in immunosuppressed populations after a primary lung infection. This patient had no evidence of pulmonary disease, and it appears that this case may be a rare cutaneous primary infection in an immunocompetent patient.
