Cutaneous cryptococcal infection presenting as vulvar lesion

Cutaneous cryptococcal infection presenting as vulvar lesion

A woman aged 60, who had been immunosuppressed since receiving a renal transplant 17 years before, developed a painless ulcerated lesion on her right labia majora. Cryptoccocus neoformans was demonstrated by culture and biopsy of the lesion. This is the first reported case of a genital skin caused by C. neoformans.
