A 38‐year‐old male with history of trauma in the left gluteal region 20 years ago presented with a dark red skin eruption at the traumatized area. It gradually grew to form an erythematous plaque with a well‐defined border. Clinical findings and mycological cultures resulted in the diagnosis of chromoblastomycosis due to Fonsecaea pedrosoi. After initial administration of 5‐fluorocytosine and local heat an almost complete cure was achieved with terbinafine combined with local heat therapy. A… 
Extensive chromoblastomycosis caused by Fonsecaea pedrosoi successfully treated with a combination of amphotericin B and itraconazole.
TLDR
A case of extensive chromoblastomycosis of 22 years duration caused by F. pedrosoi is reported and present treatments of the disease are unsatisfactory as one of the most common etiologic agents, Fonsecaea pedro soi is difficult to manage from a therapeutic point of view.
CHROMOBLASTOMYCOSIS MASQUERADING AS DERMATOPHYTOSIS, WITH THE DESCRIPTION OF A NEW OPPORTUNISTIC SPECIES.
TLDR
The case was unusual in its clinical presentation and this is the first case of chromoblastomycosis reported to be caused by a new opportunistic species of the genus Rhinocladiella, which originally was a saprophytic dematiaceous fungus recovered from maize field soil from Colombia.
Chromoblastomycosis: still a therapeutic challenge
TLDR
Oral itraconazole and terbinafine have both presented results consistent enough to be considered as ‘methods of choice’, but therapy still poses a great challenge.
Treatment of chromoblastomycosis with terbinafine: Experience with four cases
TLDR
Terbinafine at 500 mg/day doses represents one of the best treatments for chromoblastomycosis due to its efficacy and excellent tolerability.
Chromoblastomycosis
TLDR
Despite a variety of treatment modalities, which include long courses of antifungals, surgical excision and destructive physical therapies, the disease remains one of the most difficult deep mycotic infections to eradicate.
Treating chromoblastomycosis with systemic antifungals
TLDR
In extensive and refractory cases, chemotherapy with oral antifungals may be associated with thermotherapy (local heat and/or cryosurgery) and limited or early cases may be managed with surgical methods, always associated with oralantifungal agents.
An unusual dematiaceous fungal infection of the skin caused by Fonsecaea pedrosoi: a case report and review of the literature
TLDR
A 43‐year‐old man with diabetes mellitus treated with steroids for reactive airway disease developed chromoblastomycosis in the left wrist and was treated with antifungals and multiple surgical excisions.
USE OF AMPHOTERICIN B IN THE SIMULTANEOUS TREATMENT OF CHROMOBLASTOMYCOSIS AND AMERICAN TEGUMENTARY LEISHMANIASIS: A CASE REPORT
TLDR
It was observed that the patient had an important improvement of the CMB lesions with the use of amphotericin B in combination with itraconazole, thus demonstrating the role that the former can play in the therapy of this fungal disease.
Chromoblastomycosis
SUMMARY Chromoblastomycosis (CBM), also known as chromomycosis, is one of the most prevalent implantation fungal infections, being the most common of the gamut of mycoses caused by melanized or
Chromoblastomycosis: an overview of clinical manifestations, diagnosis and treatment.
TLDR
There is no treatment of choice for this neglected mycosis, but rather several treatment options, and treatment should be guided according to clinical, mycological and histopathological criteria.

A Case of Chromomycosis
TLDR
Hormodendrum Pedrosoi was cultivated from a deeply infiltrated, partly papillary ulcer having developed in a 71 years-old man who lives in Saitama Prefecture near Tokyo on the back of the left hand, and prompted prompt healing after the administration of pottasium iodide both orally and topically.

The aim of the present work was to characterize the infiltrating cells in fungal diseases of the skin by using immunohistochemical methods. The lesions of superficial mycosis were characterized by a

The antifungal activity of terbinafine in vitro has been studied by several investigators whose results have shown that the compound is effective against a wide range of pathogenic fungi. It is well
Inhibition of squalene epoxidase by allylamine antimycotic compounds. A comparative study of the fungal and mammalian enzymes.
TLDR
The selective inhibition of squalene epoxidase was sufficient to account for the known antimycotic action of the compounds, and there was no evidence for an irreversible or mechanism-based inhibition of either the fungal or the mammalian ep oxidase.
The expression of integrin α2β1 and attachment to type I collagen of melanoma cells are preferentially induced by tumour promoter, TPA (12‐O‐tetradecanoyl phorbol‐13‐acetate)
TLDR
The data suggest that the increased attachment of melanoma cells to type I collagen appears to be mediated by the preferential augmentation of integrin α2β1, and the activation of calmodulin kinase, but not via theactivation of PKC.
