Abstract

Mycoses caused by dematiaceous (darkly pigmented) fungi are escalating in contemporary medicine. Such fungal infections are properly termed phaeohyphomycosis and are of increasing concern to dermatologists. A high index of suspicion, knowledge of clinical and laboratory presentations, enhanced mycologic attention, and an awareness of current therapeutic modalities--surgical and chemotherapeutic--may offer optimal management strategies for patients experiencing this type of often unique mycotic infection.
