“…The biopsy specimens of the 6 case-patients confirmed the diagnosis; these specimens showed granulomatous inflammation without abscesses and large numbers of phagocytized yeast of uniform size that formed chains linked by tiny and thin bridges ( 3 , 18 , 40 ). Once these manifestations are observed, the diagnosis of lobomycosis should not be confused with other diseases.…”

“…Lobomycosis can be confused with other cutaneous diseases. Other diagnoses include cutaneous leishmaniasis, as occurred for 2 of the soldiers, as well as diffuse leishmaniasis, chromomycosis, sporotrichosis, lepromatous or tuberculoid dimorphic leprosy, mycetoma, phaeohyphomycosis, pyoderma, Kaposi sarcoma, sarcoidosis, keloid scars, histiocytosis of Langerhans cells, melanoma, dermatofibrosarcoma, lymphoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and cutaneous metastases ( 3 , 17 , 40 , 41 ). Thus, a skin biopsy is necessary to confirm the diagnosis.…”

“…A high fungal burden, such as that seen in our patient's biopsies, was found in only 5.9% of the cases [ 12 ]. In fact, in endemic areas of sporotrichosis, the diagnosis is highly suspected when the architectural pattern of deep mycosis is present in a section of tissue where no microorganism can be found [ 13 ]. It seems evident that our patient's severely compromised immunity played a role in the clinical and histopathological presentation.…”
