Abstract

As a by-product of organ transplant surgery, increasing numbers of patients are being maintained in a state of decreased immunologic reactivity. Many such patients have developed infections with a variety of organisms, and these infections have followed an atypical course. Three patients with unusual cutaneous infections are herein reported. One developed persistent varicella, another severe herpes simplex infection, and the final patient died of disseminated histoplasmosis, manifested by a widespread erysipelas-like inflammation and panniculitis.
