Cryptococcus gattii are closely related species of encapsulated yeast-like fungi involved in the etiology of cryptococcosis, especially in immunocompetent individuals. Dissemination with involvement of many organ systems is common. On the other hand, cellulitis in an immunossupressed patient caused by C. gattii is rare. We present a case of disseminated disease caused by Cryptococcus gattii in a lung transplant recipient who manifested cellulitis. The disease was also complicated by a lung carcinoma. We emphasize that cryptococcal cellulitis related to C. gattii in solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients should be considered in the differential diagnosis of acute bacterial skin infections.
