Skin mucormycosis presenting as an erythema-nodosum-like rash in a renal transplant recipient: a case report.

Abstract Cutaneous mucormycosis is a rare entity related to kidney transplantation. It usually presents with ecthyma-like lesions and black necrotic cellulitis. We report an unusual case of primary cutaneous mucormycosis presenting as erythema-nodosum-like lesions in a woman who had received a renal transplant.

AB  - INTRODUCTION: Cutaneous mucormycosis is a rare entity related to kidney
      transplantation. It usually presents with ecthyma-like lesions and black necrotic
      cellulitis. We report an unusual case of primary cutaneous mucormycosis
      presenting as erythema-nodosum-like lesions in a woman who had received a renal
      transplant. CASE PRESENTATION: A 49-year-old woman with diabetes received a
      living-unrelated kidney transplant. Her clinical course was uneventful for the
      first six months after transplantation. She then developed multiple, painful,
      erythema-nodosum-like lesions on her right leg and thigh following an episode of 
      minor trauma. Mucormycosis was diagnosed by skin biopsy. Microscopic examination 
      also showed panniculitis. The patient was treated successfully with amphotericin 
      B and surgical resection. To our knowledge, this is the first description of
      primary cutaneous mucormycosis with erythema-nodosum-like lesions and
      panniculitis after renal transplantation. CONCLUSION: Cutaneous mucormycosis
      should be considered in the differential diagnosis when a kidney transplant
      recipient develops erythema-nodosum-like lesions with panniculitis.
