They are difficult to manage due to complications and little difficulty in treatment due to the late consultation of the patients.

11 patients were found with sporotrichosis (Sporothrix schenkii complex), 21 with chromoblastomycosis (Fonsecae pedrosoi complex 47,6%, Phialophora verrucosa 4,7 %), 4 mice (Scedosporium apiospermum, Acremonium kiliensi, Fusarium solani and Nocardia brasiliens) and 7 cutaneous nocardiosis (3 Nocardia brasiliensis, 2 Nocardia farcinica, 1 Nocardia transvalensis and 1 Nocardia sp.). A clinical presentation and the departments of origin of the patients are mentioned.
