Patients from hematology department, with a weak immune system, can develop opportunist infections due to environment moulds that proliferate without notion of accidental inoculation or pre-existent lesion. We report a triple cutaneous infection case caused by Cunninghamella bertholletiae, Phomopsis spp. and Paraconiothyrium spp. on three different anatomic sites in a 68-years-old Martinican patient treated with high-dose chemotherapy and long-term corticotherapy for B-cell lymphoma and who also developed necrotic placards of legs. The patient's condition improved after stopping corticotherapy, treatment by voriconazole and medullary restoration. We will discuss about cases described in literature about those rare and different kinds of pathogenic agents while considering evolution, topography of lesions in our case, in order to focus on specificities. We shall emphasize the necessity to be careful about cutaneous hurt in immunocompromised patients. Copyright © 2012. Published by Elsevier SAS.
