Abstract

A case of cutaneous cryptococcosis (encapsulated strain) in a 67-year-old female, with no evidence of immune suppression (normal cell surface marker analysis and mitogen proliferation studies) and which responded to treatment with oral fluconazole is reported. To date her clinical progress remains satisfactory after 12 months of follow-up.
