    Fungi in the class of zygomycetes usually produce serious infections in diabetics and immunocompromised hosts. Cutaneous zygomycosis is a less common form, with an unpredictable extent of anatomical involvement and clinical course1.¹ Here, we report a case of primary cutaneous zygomycosis caused by saksaenea vasiformis as posttraumatic complications in a diabetic female. Zygomycosis was suspected and specimens from the surgical debridement were examined by microbiological and histopathological studies for conforming the clinical diagnosis. Rapid diagnosis, liposomal amphotericin B, and proper debridement of affected tissue are necessary to avoid a fatal outcome. © Journal of the Association of Physicians of India 2011.
