Diagnosis: lacaziosis, or lobomycosis [1]. The diagnosis was confirmed by direct examination of the skin biopsy, highlighting the presence of round or oval yeastlike organisms 6–12 μm in diameter, either isolated or in chains, with a birefringent membrane (Figure 1). The periodic acid-Schiff–stained and the Gomori-Grocott methenamine silver–stained sections of the sample revealed short chains of lemon-shaped fungal cells connected by thin, tubelike bridges (Figure 2). Morphology was consistent… Expand
