Subcutaneous opportunistic fungal infections are rarely encountered in renal transplant recipients. Phaeohyphomycosis is one such fungal infection caused by the members of dematiaceous fungi affecting predominantly the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Herein, we report the case of histopathological and culture-proven subcutaneous phaeohyphomycosis presenting as a recurrent abscess. The patient was treated with wide surgical excision of the lesion along with antifungal therapy. We also attempted successfully autologous skin grafting for the raw area of skin.
