Abstract

Subcutaneous phycomycosis is a rare fungal infection of the deeper layers of skin. We describe a representative case. A 10-year-old boy presented with a large swelling on the back of 3 months duration. Biopsy of the lesion confirmed the diagnosis of subcutaneous phycomycosis. There was complete resolution of the lesion after treatment with oral potassium iodide for 3 months.
