Abstract: Primary cutaneous cryptococcosis is characterized by skin lesions confined to one body region, without evidence of simultaneous dissemination. Skin lesions frequently occur in immunocompromised patients. We report a case of primary cutaneous cryptococcosis in an immunocompetent patient affecting genital area successfully treated with oral itraconazole.
