Chromomycosis is a rare mycotic infection that is more frequent in tropical and subtropical regions. Dematiaceous fungi are the causal agents of this mycosis. Several cases of chromomycosis in organ transplant recipients have been reported. We present a case of chromomycosis by Exophiala jeanselmei in a Spanish male who had received a renal transplant several months previously, and was receiving treatment with tacrolimus, prednisone and mycophenolate mofetil. Very few cases of chromomycosis due to Exophiala have been reported, and this is, to our knowledge, the first European case.
