Superficial cutaneous fungal infections are common in our country in the kidney transplant recipients. However, deep fungal infections involving the skin and subcutaneous tissue are relatively rare. Here, we report a case of chromoblastomycosis in a renal allograft recipient on a calcineurin inhibitor-free immunosuppression. The case highlights the importance of skin biopsy in differentiating various skin lesions in transplant patients and the role of the early institution of appropriate treatment in successfully treating these infections.
