Candidiasis is the most common fungal infection in immunocompromised patients who are at greater risk for developing disseminated disease. Renal transplant recipients often are administered immunosuppressants and therefore are at an increasedriskfor developing disseminated candidal infections. Disseminated candidiasis generally does not present with cutaneous lesions, but when present, lesions usually are generalized or limited to the trunk and limbs. We describe the case of an immunosuppressed renal transplant recipient who developed a disseminated Candida kefyr infection and presented with oral mucosal lesions and cutaneous lesions limited to the left lower extremity. The lesions were localized due to a thrombus that was subsequently found in the patient’s left external iliac artery.
