Abstract

Chromoblastomycosis is a worldwide chronic subcutaneous infection caused by dematiaceous fungi and clinically characterized by verrucous lesions. Herein, we report a rare case of chromoblastomycosis caused by in a 60-year-old male carpenter with a 40-year history of psoriasis from Shandong in northern China. A fungal infection coexisting with psoriasis presents a management dilemma. Our patient responded well to combined itraconazole and acitretin therapy and the lesions resolved completely after 1 month of treatment.
