Summary

A 70-year-old male agriculturist from a rural area presented with a history of a painless verrucous lesion over the medial aspect of the left leg for 1 year following abrasion by a branch of a coconut tree. KOH preparation of the skin biopsy showed evidence of fungal elements. Cladophilalospora sp. was isolated in culture. The case was diagnosed as chromoblastomycosis. As there was no response to itraconazole, complete surgical resection of the lesion was done. At follow-up after 1 year there was clinical as well as mycological cure.
