Abstract

Medicopsis romeroi (M. romeroi) (syn. Pyrenochaeta romeroi) is a rare melanized fungus causing subcutaneous/localized invasive phaeohyphomycosis in immunocompromised patients. We present a rare case of subcutaneous phaeohypho-mycotic cyst caused by M.romeroi in a diabetic male with lepromatous leprosy. Molecular identification was performed by sequencing of Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) region and D1/D2 region of Large Ribosomal Subunit (LSU).
