Malakoplakia is a rare chronic granulomatous inflammatory condition, commonly presenting in immunocompromised patients. It most commonly occurs in urinary tract. The cutaneous form is less frequent. Here, we report a case of cutaneous malakoplakia involving perianal skin in an immunocompetent 61-year old female diagnosed on histopathology utilizing special stains. To the best of authors’ knowledge, this is the 8case report of cutaneaous malakoplakia of perianal skin in the English literature and 3in the Indian literature.
