Published Web Locationhttps://doi.org/10.5070/D3242038170
Cutaneous cryptococcosis is usually secondary to the hematogenous dissemination of pulmonary or meningeal Cryptococcus neoformans. Primary cutaneous cryptococcosis (PCC) is a rare form of the infection, typically caused by direct inoculation from trauma to the skin . Most cases of PCC present as a localized cellulitis, abscess, nodule, or ulceration. Herein, we present a case of a rapidly spreading cellulitis characterized by bullae and ulceration, caused by direct inoculation from a fall.
