Maduromycosis Caused by Monosporium Apiospermum. Presented by Dr. Irene Neuhauser and (by invitation) Dr. Tancredo Furtado, Dr. Jack M. Fox and Dr. Roland S. Medansky, University of Illinois Research and Educational Hospital.
This 56-year-old man was apparently well until 18 months ago, when he developed a painful swelling on the sole of his left foot. Surgery was performed in April, 1959, for a "tumor" of the left foot. After surgery the mass became larger, and he developed multiple draining sites on the sole.The patient presented himself to the Orthopedic Clinic of the University of Illinois Hospitals in September of this year. At this time there was a 6 cm. × 2 cm. subcutaneous tender mass on the sole of the left foot. X-ray of the foot revealed a moderate-sized soft tissue mass on the plantar aspect of the left foot. Complete blood count, urinalysis, and serology were normal.Surgery
