We report a patient with primary cutaneous cryptococcosis caused by Cryptococcous laurentii following renal transplantation, probably due to repeated insulin and heparin subcutaneous injections on his thigh. Although cutaneous cryptococcosis due to C. neoformans is well known, reports of skin infections due to non-neoformans cryptococci are uncommon.
