Phaeohyphomycosis of the Foot Caused by Phaeoacremoniumrubrigenum in an Elderly Lady: Fungal Infection with a Tumour like Presentation

We described a rare case of phaeohyphomycosis of right foot in an elderly caused by Phaeoacremonium rubrigenum which was misdiagnosed as a soft tissue tumour of right foot.

We would like to share this interesting case as the presentation mimicking a tumour which can lead to misdiagnosis.
