Arch Dermatol. 1981;117(5):290-291. doi:10.1001/archderm.1981.01650050046020

• An 81-year-old man with primary cutaneous cryptococcosis of the left forearm was treated with intravenous and oral miconazole nitrate. Culture for Cryptococcus became negative within three weeks. The ulcer healed within 25 days after treatment was started. Follow-up examination 1½ years later showed no evidence of recurrent infection.
