ABSTRACT
Mycetoma is a chronic infection, frequently seen in tropical and sub-tropical countries and is considered as an occupational disease. Nocardia species though it can infect immunocompetent individuals, it most commonly affects immunocompromised patients. A 50-year-old male, farmer presented to our hospital with serosanguineous discharging swelling over the dorsum of right foot. We have isolated Nocardia asteroides from the tissue sample. Speciation of this isolate was carried out based on phenotypic methods. Hereby we report a case of Actinomycetes Mycetoma in an immunocompetent individual.

Figure 2: Direct smear from the discharge

Mentions: In the laboratory, a smear was prepared from the sample and stained with Gram's stain, which revealed thin, long, branching, Gram-positive filamentous bacilli [Figure 2]. On modified Ziehl-Neilson stain (1% H2SO4 decolorizer) the filaments were weakly acid fast.
