Chromoblastomycosis

Chromoblastomycosis is a specific type of cutaneous infection, which is caused by the (pigmented) Dematiaceous fungi. Symptoms are ulcerating nodules on exposed body parts. The diagnosis is made because of the clinical features, histopathological findings and exciting culture. The sessions are held with Itraconazo, another Azoll or flucytosine and surgical excision.

A Chromoblastomycosis is a cutaneous infection, the normal, immunocompetent persons usually affects in tropical or subtropical regions. It is characterized by the formation of papillomatous nodes which have a tendency to ulceration.

A Chromoblastomycosis is a cutaneous infection, the normal, immunocompetent persons usually affects in tropical or subtropical regions. It is characterized by the formation of papillomatous nodes which have a tendency to ulceration. Symptoms and signs Most infections begin at the foot or leg, but other exposed body parts can also be infected, especially in skin defects. Early-onset, small, itchy, enlarging papules can a dermatophytosis (ringworm, “ringworm”) remember. This papules expand and form matte red or purple, sharply defined spots with indurated base. A few weeks or months later can form new lesions that are raised 1-2 mm above the skin along the lymph vessels. In the center of the spots is hard, dull red or grayish cauliflower-shaped nodular growths can develop and if the infection is left untreated, expand gradually over many years, to ultimately cover the extremities. There may be an obstruction of lymphatic vessels, the itching may persist, and secondary bacterial superinfection may develop and lead to ulceration and occasionally septicemia.
