“…Cutaneous manifestations of primary cryptococcal infection is varied (Table 3) and descriptions in the literature range from acneiform lesions to vesicular lesions mimicking Herpes simplex or H. zoster, nodular, nodulo-ulcerative to frank ulceration, simulating pyoderma gangrenosum [51], molluscum contagiosum in non-HIV infected patients [52], and Kaposi's sarcoma [53], basal cell carcinoma [54] and molluscum contagiosum [55] in HIV patients. It should be noted that cellulitis often has a similar presentation to bacterial cellulitis.…”

Case 1, who had been suffering from erythroderma, and was immunosuppressed with systemic prednisolone therapy.…”

“…2 Even in the patients with AIDS, the cutaneous lesions usually present as non-NF soft tissue infection, not fatal NF. 3,4 Although such infection types are frequent in compromised patients, it is important to understand they can occur in normal hosts as well. Disseminated cryptococcosis with fatal NF is very rare, especially in a nonimmunocompromised patient.…”

“…[1][2][3][4] In patients with a disseminated form of the disease, the organism is presumed to be inhaled, infecting the lungs first and then spreading hematogenously to other organs, most frequently to the meninges. Disseminated cryptococcosis with the early appearance of a fatal necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is very rare and, to the authors' knowledge, unreported in the literatures.…”
