Abstract
We report a case of primary cutaneous cryptococcosis in a 63-year-old female, who

had a painful deep ulceration on the left forearm for 2 months. Histopathological

examination showed numerous encapsulated round spores in the dermis and subcutis. A

tissue culture on Sabouraud's media without cycloheximide showed whitish creamy

colonies and revealed budding yeast cells in lactophenol cotton blue preparations. The

organism was identified as Cryptococcus neoformans. The lesion was successfully

treated with oral fluconazole(400 mg/day) for 2 months combined with surgical

debridement.
