Mycetoma is a chronic infection of the skin, subcutaneous tissue and sometimes bone characterised by discharging sinuses filled with organisms. It is generally found on the foot, where it is sometimes given the name watering can foot. Infections spread through contiguous subcutaneous areas, resulting in tumefaction and formation of multiple draining sinuses that exude characteristic grains of clumped organisms. Microscopic tissue reactions may be primarily suppurative or granulomatous depending on the specific causative agent. As the infection progresses, bacterial superinfections can develop.
HOW IS MYCETOMA DIAGNOSED?
The diagnosis of the condition is based on the evaluation of the discharge which is extracted using a needle. Occasionally, the general physician may need a skin biopsy.
HOW IS MYCETOMA TREATED?
Mycetoma cannot be resolved without active treatment. General physician may prescribe a single or combination of drugs. Antibiotics are required for months to years. Deformity may persist after treatment. Severe cases require surgical removal of tissue.
DID YOU KNOW?
Mycetoma occurs mainly in tropical or subtropical areas, including the southern US, and is acquired when organisms enter through sites of local trauma on bare skin of the feet or on the extremities or backs of workers carrying contaminated vegetation or other objects. Men aged 20 to 40 are most often affected, presumably because of trauma incurred while working outdoors.
