Abstract:

Fusarium species are common soil-inhabiting organisms and plant pathogens. Human infections are usually precipitated by local or systemic predisposing factors, and disseminated infection is associated with impaired immune responses. Skin infections caused by Fusarium spp include keratitis, onychomycosis, mycetoma, painful discrete erythematous nodules. We report a case of mycetoma caused by Fusariom solani in an immunocompetent young boy from Karnataka.


Keywords: Mycetoma, Fusariom solani,  onychomycosis.
