RODRIGUEZ ESPINOZA, Mirsha Omar; ACO LUNA, Jesús Alberto; LARA FLORES, Norarizbeth  y  RODRIGUEZ ESPINOSA, Priscila. CHROMOBLASTOMYCOSIS IN RIGHT POPLITEAL FOSSA, CASE REPORT. PUEBLA, MEXICO. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2019, vol.22, n.1, pp. 53-56. ISSN 2077-3323.

Chromoblastomycosis is a subcutaneous mycosis produced by pigment-producing fungi known as dematiaceous, commonly after a previous traumatic process. Currently the incidence of this pathology is unknown. We present the case of a 64-year-old man from the community of Coyomeapan, Puebla, Mexico, who came for lack of healing of an ulcer in the right popliteal socket generated by burning with an oil lamp four years ago. Referring pain with mild difficulty in ambulation and without evidence of active bleeding. Scraping of the lesion was performed with the presence of fumagoid cells. Cladophialophora carrionii was isolated on Boreli Agar. Treatment was started with terbinafina for recovery. The knowledge of this type of mycosis increases the possibility of an early and accurate diagnosis to avoid complications derived from the chronicity or delay of the diagnosis.

Palabras clave : Chromoblastomycosis; scars; ulcer.
