Chromoblastomycosis

Chromoblastomycosis

scaly papule or warty growth, caused by five fungi, that spreads as a result of satellite lesions affecting the foot or leg. The extremity may become swollen and, at its distal portion, covered with various nodular, tumourous, verrucous lesions that resemble cauliflower.
