Sir/Madam,

The recent publication on chromoblastomycosis is very interesting.[1] Sarangi et al. concluded that “chromoblastomycosismostly affects male agriculturalists, especially from a rural background.[1]” Indeed, this infection is sporadically seen in developing countries around the world. In our country, Thailand, a tropical Southeast Asian country, the problem is still seen despite the improved sanitation. Exposure during agricultural work is common, but the important history is the lack of sanitation and poor skin and wound care.[2],[3] The early diagnosis of this disease is sometimes difficult due to the nature of disease with has long period before clinical manifestation.[3] The lack of concern by the practitioner is also another important factor causing delayed diagnosis.[4]
