Revisiting the Clinical and Histopathological Aspects of Patients with Chromoblastomycosis from the Brazilian Amazon Region
Conclusions: These results suggest that verrucous lesions present a less competent inflammatory tissue response than patients who develop a well-formed tuberculoid reaction. The latter is associated with a more effective immune response as observed in the limited clinical forms of chromoblastomycosis. (Source: Archives of Medical Research)

[Generalized chromomycosis caused by Phialophora verrucosa].
We report an unusual case of generalised chromomycosis due to Phialophora verrucosa. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 42-year-old town-dwelling housewife was hospitalised for erythematous keratotic nodules on the arm showing sporotrichoid distribution, associated with a crusted ulcerative lesion on the homolateral index finger, as well as subcutaneous papulonodular lesions. In places, the lesions on the patient's back presented an umbilical and molluscoid appearance. The patient had suffered no previous injuries and had not visited any areas in which leishmaniasis is endemic. Her history included insulin-dependent diabetes....

In Vitro Antifungal Susceptibility of Cladophialophora carrionii, Agent of Human Chromoblastomycosis.
Abstract A global collection of Cladophialophora carrionii (n = 81) was tested against nine antifungal drugs. MIC(90) of all strains were in increasing order: itraconazole and posaconazole (0.063 μg/ml), terbinafine (0.125 μg/ml), isavuconazole and voriconazole (0.25 μg/ml), caspofungin (2 μg/ml), micafungin (4 μg/ml), amphotericin B (8 μg/ml) and fluconazole (64 μg/ml).
