Vinod K Sharma, Bhushan Kumar, Inderjit Kaur, Surrinder Kaur
A 35 year old male having erythematous and verrucous plaques and scars on his right lower limb, diagnosed as a case of chromoblastomycosis is described. The importance of close scrutiny of lesions for brownish- black dots and their direct microscopic exarmination in 10% KOH for the causative fungus is highlighted. The causative fungus was identified as Cladosporium carrionni.
