Malakoplakia is a form of chronic, granulomatous, inflammatory condition which usually affects the genitourinary tract or other internal organs of immunocompromised patients. It is usually caused by acquired bactericidal incapacity of macrophages in connection to Eschericia coli infection. This case report presents an extremely rare case of cutaneous malakoplakia in the left axilla of a 48-year-old male patient, who had undergone kidney transplant one year earlier. The clinical presentation of cutaneous malakoplakia varies from nodules to plaques and moist wounds. The primary treatment is long-term antibiotic therapy.
