Chromoblastomycosis is a fungal infection involving the subcutaneous tissue. Chromoblastomycosis occurs mostly due to traumatic inoculation of the fungal pathogen and generally remains restricted to the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Bone involvement is rather rare. Considering the vulnerability to trauma in agriculture-dependent countries like India, where trauma is mostly sustained during agricultural work, this clinical entity is of public health importance. We present the case of an adult male, who developed chromoblastomycosis of the foot with contiguous bone involvement showing osteolytic lesions.
