Chromoblastomycosis is a slowly growing fungal infection of skin and subcutaneous tissue. It is caused by a variety of pigmented fungal species growing in soil and decaying vegetation. We report a case of cutaneous chromoblastomycosis in a patient, who received chemotherapy and radiotherapy for carcinoma of gall bladder. A 40 years female patient had presented with vesiculobullous lesions coalesced to form plaques on both thighs and legs. Biopsy from vesiculobullous lesions was done. Histological features and special stains confirmed the diagnosis of Chromoblastomycosis.
