Abstract

FERREIRA, Leonardo Mello; PEREIRA, Rodrigo Negri; DINIZ, Lucia Martins  and  SOUZA FILHO, João Basilio de. Case for diagnosis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2006, vol.81, n.3, pp. 291-293. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962006000300013.

We report a patient suffering from dimorphic Hansen's disease who has self medicated his neuropathy with oral corticosteroid for a long time. A yellowish, nodular-cystic lesion partially topped with crusting, surrounded by a brownish red halo, was noted on the inner aspect of his left leg. Direct mycological examination confirmed the hypothesis of pheohyphomycosis.

Keywords : Cladosporium; Exophiala; Iatrogenic disease; Mycoses.
