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.
