(fē'ō-hī'fō-mī-kō'sis),
A group of superficial and deep infections caused by fungi that form pigmented hyphae and yeastlike cells in tissue, that is, dematiaceous fungal infections other than chromoblastomycosis and mycetomas. In humans, cats, and horses, phaeohyphomycosis is caused by many species.

phaeohyphomycosis

opportunistic infections caused by the pigmented (dematiaceous) fungi, including Alternaria, Aureobasidium, Bipolaris, Cladosporium, Curvularia, Drechslera, Exophiala, Exserohilum rostratum, Moniliella and Phialophora, Wangiella spp.

subcutaneous phaeohyphomycosis
subcutaneous nodules containing yellow-brown fungal hyphae, and which may ulcerate and produce a sinus tract. May cause mycetoma if the lesions develop to granuloma.
