We present a case of cutaneous zygomycosis in a patient with an ureteroileostomy and severe metabolic acidosis, but without diabetes. The patient died despite multiple aggressive surgical interventions and antifungal therapy with liposomal amphotericin B. Ureteroileostomy-related acidosis can be a predisposing factor for zygomycosis. Metabolic acidosis can have a role in the severity of cutaneous disease.
