In 1943 Moore, Cooper, and Weiss reported two cases of chromoblastomycosis and noted that six cases of the disease contracted in the United States had been reported previously. The 9th case was reported by Binford, Hess, and Emmons and the 10th by Mundt and Moore. Lewis and his associates reported on a 67-year-old man with chromoblastomycosis of seven years' duration on the right hand. Chronic infectious granuloma developed after the hand was injured by wood splinters, and microscopic examination revealed chromoblastomycosis. Conway and Berkeley reported the case of a 44-year-old Negro man who sustained an abrasion on the side of the foot that developed into a slightly elevated tumor with purplish-black nodules. The first case report from Canada was by Berger, Beaudry, and Gaumond. The disease has been reported once each in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Texas, and Louisiana, twice in New York, and three times in Missouri.
