Fungal pathogens can be the source of serious and sometimes fatal infections following organ transplantation. To the best of our knowledge, we present the first case of cutaneous blastomycosis in a renal allograft recipient in India, a country outside the known endemic regions. This case, with the very rare and unexpected diagnosis of blastomycosis, not only reflects the tremendous diversity of infections in transplant recipients but also emphasizes the utility of serological methods even in the immunosuppressed host.
