Differential Diagnosis

History: Mycetoma is chronic granulomatous cutaneous and subcutaneous infection that sometimes involves the deeper tissues including fascia and bone.   It is characterised by tumefaction, draining sinuses and presence of sclerotia or granules in the pus. Actinomycetomas are  caused by microaerophilic actinomycetes, and eumycetomas are caused by fungi.
