Eumycetoma is a chronic granulomatous fungal disease of the subcutaneous tissues characterized by large tumorous masses and the production either black or white grains.1 As a result of the use of molecular diagnostic techniques, previously unrecognized causative agents of eumycetoma have been discovered. We report the first case to our knowledge of eumycetoma caused by Phaeoacremonium sphinctrophorum.
