Abstract

Lobomycosis, also known as Jorge Lobo's disease, is a granulomatous, chronic fungal disease that involves the skin and subcutaneous tissue. The disease has been reported in South American, Central and North American countries, being particularly frequent in the Brazilian Amazon region. We report a case of disseminated lobomycosis in an 86 year-old Brazilian woman with a 55-year history of disseminated cutaneous lesions.
