Abstract Mycetoma is a progressively mutilating infectious disease of the subcutaneous tissue that affects the skin and deep structures, which is poorly responsive to chemotherapy. Here, we report a skin mycetoma caused by Paecilomyces variotii , an uncommon fungus of human infections, and the therapeutic approach that resulted in a complete cure of the patient.
