Abstract
Primary cutaneous cryptococcosis is a fungal infection caused by Cryptococ cus neoformans which is frequently occurred in the immunosuppressed host. The treatment of primary cutaneous cryptococcosis is mainly fluconazole, and the prognosis is relatively good. We report a case of primary cutaneous cryptococcosis due to intravenous line on the left forearm after lumbar stenosis surgery in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis, who finally underwent second, fourth, and fifth ray amputation.
