Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case is reported of a subcutaneous mycotic granuloma of the forearm in a young Sudanese child. It is thought that, despite the absence of culture studies, the characteristic morphology of the fungus and the histological findings permit not only the identification of the causative organism as a phycomycete, but also the realization that it belongs not to the family Mucoraceae but to one of the other families of the phycomycetes, viz., Entomophthoraceae or Mortierellaceae. At present the most commonly identified species has been Basidiobolus, of the family Entomophthoraceae. The findings in the present case are closely similar to those reported by Lie Kian Joe and Eng, Njo-Injo Tjoei (1960) in their paper ;Subcutaneous phycomycetosis: a new disease found in Indonesia'.
