Abstract

Subcutaneous fungal infection is one of the various forms of fungal infection in which implantation of an organism occurs via trauma and primarily involves the dermis and subcutaneous tissue. Due to the depth of tissue involvement both medical and surgical intervention is required. We report a case of a 55-year-old female presenting with a swelling of the right foot, biopsy of which revealed a subcutaneous fungal infection. With post-operative oral antifungal administration, local excision, regular dressings followed by a split skin graft, this patient's condition improved.
