Chromoblastomycosis is caused by pigmented fungi like Fonsecaea compacta, F.
It is most commonly caused by Fonsecaea pedrosoi, Cladophialophora carrionii and Phialophora verrucosa.(1) The disease is characterised by the presence of sclerotic bodies in the tissue.
(26) described the effect of nelfinavir and saquinavir against the dematious fungus Fonsecaea pedrosoi and confirmed that these compounds alone were unable to inhibit the growth of this fungus.
Antifungal activity was demonstrated as growth inhibition of Candida albicans, Cryptococcus neoformans or Fonsecaea pedrosoi.
Chromoblastomycosis is caused by several genera of dematiaceous (melanin pigmented) fungi: Phialophora verrucosa, Fonsecaea pedrosoi (F.compactum, Exophiala jeanselmei, E.spinifera), Wangiella dermatitidis, Rhinocladiella aquaspersa, Cladosporium carrionii, and Rhytidhysteron spp.
