Figure 1: (a) Periodic acid–Schiff-stained section from the skin lesion (×20 magnification) shows normal epidermal lining. The subepidermal tissue shows scattered inflammatory cells dispersed in gelatinous and mucoid background. (b) At higher magnification (×40), numerous yeast forms of Cryptococcus neoformans are seen with prominent magenta capsules
