Phaeohyphomycoses are fungal infections, caused by dematiaceous fungi, manifested as Cutaneous and Subcutaneous infections, Keratitis, Osteomyelitis, Meningitis, Sinusitis, and disseminated infections.
This is a case report of a 59 year old diabetic male who presented with noduloulcerative lesion on right leg for two and half months. Biopsy of the lesion revealed septate, dematiaceous fungal hyphae on 10% KOH mount. Fungal culture of the biopsy material on Sabouraud’s Dextrose Agar showed velvety, dark brown to black growth with black reverse and identified as dematiaceous fungi- Rhytidhysteron rufulum.
