A Case of Chromoblastomycosis Showing a Good Response to Itraconazole

Abstract

Chromoblastomycosis, a chronic fungal infection of the skin and subcutaneous tissue, is known to be difficult to treat. Recently itraconazole has proved effective for treatment of this infection, but requires a prolonged treatment course. We experienced a case of chromoblastomycosis caused by Fonsecaea pedrosoi in a 68-year-old Korean man showing a complete resolution with a short course of oral itraconazole, 200 mg daily, for six weeks.
