Paecilomyces lilacinus causes multiple diseases in humans, especially in immunocompromised patients. Cutaneous infections are the second most commonly encountered circumstance. We describe a woman with liver cirrhosis with hemorrhagic, bullous, ulcerative leg lesions caused by Paecilomyces lilacinus. The lesions improved after treatment with oral voriconazole and topical nystatin powder. We also reviewed previously reported cases of cutaneous P. lilacinus infection that were treated by oral voriconazole.
