Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Thirteen cases of deep mycoses were found among 12,506 new patients attending two University clinics in Northern Nigeria. Patients with chromoblastomycosis due to Cladosporium carrionii, paracoccidioidomycosis, rhinophycomycosis, and sporotrichosis appear to be the first cases of these conditions recognized in the Savanna region of West Africa. The literature on systemic mycoses in Nigeria is reviewed and a need for a greater awareness of the problem is stressed.
