Cutaneous mucormycosis is a rare entity related to kidney transplantation, which usually presents with ecthyma-like lesions and black necrotic cellulitis. Cutaneous mucormycosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis when a kidney transplant recipient develops erythema nodosum-like lesions with panniculitis or discharging sinus.We report an unusual case of primary cutaneous mucormycosis in a post-renal transplant patient, presenting as pus discharging sinus from the surgical incision site.
