Abstract

A 46-year-old African American man presented with a 3- to 4-day history of a new painful lesion on his left lower extremity. Other reported symptoms included a productive cough and chest pain; the patient denied fever and chills. His medical history was significant for a heart transplant 4 months prior to presentation followed by transplant rejection 2 weeks after the transplant. Medications included an antirejection/immunosuppressive regimen consisting of prednisone, tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, and prophylaxis treatment with valganciclovir and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.
