Abstract

Fingolimod is an immune-modulating drug used in the treatment of multiple sclerosis. Histoplasma capsulatum is a dimorphic fungus that can infect humans. Infection with the pathogen typically affects the lungs, but it is usually asymptomatic and self-limited. However, immunocompromised patients infected with the pathogen can present atypically, including the development of primary cutaneous lesions. We describe an interesting clinical case of a cutaneous H capsulatum infection in a patient treated with fingolimod.
