Chromoblastomycosis (CBM) is a rare chronic fungal infection of skin and subcutaneous tissue caused by dematiaceous fungi. We report herein a case of chromoblastomycosis, which appeared clinically as an implantation dermoid cyst in a 68-year-old male. The study emphasizes the need for clinical suspicion, awareness of the entity, and diligent search for sclerotic bodies in histopathology. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent untoward complications.
