A hemophilia B patient, seropositive for HIV antibodies since 1984, came
to us in March 1989 with a severe necrotizing lesion of the nose. It was
an erythematous lesion and looked like rhinophyma. Microbiological
examination of the skin biopsy showed the presence of Cryptococcus
neoformans. At the time of the study, the patient was in partial
remission after 2 weeks of therapy with fluconazole per os 400 mg/day.
He will be treated with the same therapy at maintenance dose (200
mg/day) for a long period.
