Abstract

BACKGROUND: describes clinical aspects of patients with chromoblastomycosis treated at the dermatology department of the Para State University. The  present  study  aimed  to  describe  clinical  and therapeutic   aspects   of   patients   with   chromoblastomycosis   treated   at the   dermatology department  of  Para  State  University.


METHODS: An  observational,  descriptive,  case  series  study  was performed,  comprising  12  patients  with  the  diagnosis  of  chromoblastomycosis.  A  clinical interview and a dermatological protocole were applied, classifing these patients in variables as gender, age, time of illness, type of lesion (size, shape, appearance,  location  and  evolution),  treatment and complications.  Those unable to attend the clinic in person or unable to be represented by someone legally, a Term of Consent for Data Use was applied.


CONCLUSIONS: most of the patients were male, rural workers, with vegetative lesions according to the classification of Carrión, graduated as moderate, with less than 10 years of evolution.
