INTRODUCTION TO SUBCUTANEOUS MYCOSES –  Subcutaneous mycosis is principally found in tropical and subtropical regions. The fungi causing such subcutaneous mycoses are either normally present in the soil or are pathogens of plants. the various types of subcutaneous mycoses include – Mycotic Mycetoma Sporotrichosis Rhinosporidiosis Chromomycosis Subcutaneous phycomycosis MYCETOMA ⇒ Mycetoma is a chronic, granulomatous, post-traumatic infections of the subcutaneous tissue, usually affects the foot and rarely the other parts ...
