Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 64 year old man who presented for outpatient evaluation of multiple cutaneous skin lesions that began as erythematous macules approximately one year earlier and progressed to areas of brownish hyperpigmentation. A discussion of diagnostic testing which was conducted on the man, and resulted in him receiving a diagnosis of pulmonary mucormycosis complicating cutaneous blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm, is presented.
