Case 1: A 69-year-old woman presented with a 6-month history of an asymptomatic scar-like plaque on the right hand dorsum, which started as a laceration during gardening and developed into a crusted plaque. Her relevant medical history included renal transplantation due to renal failure of an unknown aetiology, which required immunosuppression treatment with prednisone, tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil. She had been also taking budesonide inhaler along with various other concurrent medications. An examination showed a single linear hyperkeratotic plaque covering the second metacarpophalangeal joint. Laboratory tests showed underlying stable hyponatraemia along with slightly increased creatinine and urea. All other findings were normal. A punch biopsy specimen was collected for microbiology and histology including fungal and mycobacterial cultures.
