PMID:  11125328     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We present a case of mycetoma by Madurella mycetomatis on the foot of a Chinese young man, living in Italy for more than ten years. Clinically the lesion closely resembled and was initially misinterpreted as a vascular neoformation. We analyze the histological and morphological features of the Madurella mycetomatis infection through which we managed to type the etiological agent. Our case is worth reporting because of the rarity of this disease in Europe and the unusual clinical presentation. It also offers the opportunity to stress the need for the clinical suspicion of this dermatosis, considering the increase of immigration towards our regions.
