Successful treatment of chromoblastomycosis of 10‐year duration due to Fonsecaea nubica

Successful treatment of chromoblastomycosis of 10‐year duration due to Fonsecaea nubica We report a case of chromoblastomycosis due to the presence of large plaque and verrucous hyperplasia lesions on the left upper limb, with elbow abnormal activities, in a 56‐year‐old male. The diagnosis of chromoblastomycosis was based on gross and microscopic morphologies, histopathological examination and clinical manifestation. Molecular tools were applied to identifying the causative agent Fonsecaea nubica, which is rarely reported to be associated with chromoblastomycosis. The patient was initially treated orally with terbinafine (250 mg/day) and itraconazole (200 mg/day), subsequently patient received thermotherapy (45‐50°C, 3 h/day) for 1 month. The patient was successfully cured. A literature review was performed to assess general features, treatment and outcome of chromoblastomycosis due to F.  nubica. All the 5 reviewed patients were male, over 30 years old and their lesions occurred after traumatic inoculation. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Mycoses Wiley

Abstract

We report a case of chromoblastomycosis due to the presence of large plaque and verrucous hyperplasia lesions on the left upper limb, with elbow abnormal activities, in a 56‐year‐old male. The diagnosis of chromoblastomycosis was based on gross and microscopic morphologies, histopathological examination and clinical manifestation. Molecular tools were applied to identifying the causative agent Fonsecaea nubica, which is rarely reported to be associated with chromoblastomycosis. The patient was initially treated orally with terbinafine (250 mg/day) and itraconazole (200 mg/day), subsequently patient received thermotherapy (45‐50°C, 3 h/day) for 1 month. The patient was successfully cured. A literature review was performed to assess general features, treatment and outcome of chromoblastomycosis due to F.  nubica. All the 5 reviewed patients were male, over 30 years old and their lesions occurred after traumatic inoculation.
