Resumen

SOLORZANO, Sendy; GARCIA, Roy  y  HERNANDEZ-CORDOVA, Gustavo. Chromomycosis: report of a disabling case. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2011, vol.28, n.3, pp. 552-555. ISSN 1726-4634.

Chromomycosis is a deep subcutaneous mycosis caused by different dymorphic fungi species that normally live in vegetal debris. We report the case of a 51 year-old patient that six years previous to the evaluation worked making roof tiles in Madre de Dios, Peru; where he presented an initial papular lesion in a leg, which continued expanding until the 4 limbs were affected with disabling verrucous lesions. Fumagoid cells were found in the skin biopsy. The patient was hospitalized and received topical cleaning, antibiotics and terbinafine. He was discharged two months later with clinical improvement.

Palabras llave : Chromoblastomycosis; Chromomycosis; Mycoses; Case reports.
