Abstract:Mycetoma is a chronic granulomatous disease, classified into eumycetoma caused by
fungi and actinomycetoma due to aerobic filamentous actinomycetes. Mycetoma can be
found in geographic areas near the Tropic of Cancer. Mexico is one of the countries
in which actinomycetoma is endemic. We report an extraordinary case of an adult male
with double eumycetoma caused by Madurella mycetomatis and
Fusarium verticillioides on both feet.
