Fusariosis is a hyalohyphomycosis due to Fusarium species that mainly occurs in immunocompromised hosts. The clinical spectrum of Fusarium infection comprises localized and disseminated forms. A case of localized cutaneous fusariosis caused by Fusarium solani in a renal transplant patient is described, and the skin manifestations of the disease are discussed.
