A 14-year-old boy and his 16-year-old elder brother, who had generalized tinea corporis for 1 and 3 years respectively, developed multiple discrete, non-tender soft tumors on the scalp, forehead, neck and extremities. The boys were well nourished and had no systemic diseases. Histopathologic examination of the subcutaneous nodules revealed a well encapsulated granuloma containing lobulated granules characteristic of mycetoma; these granules consisted of septated fungal hypae with vesicles. The dermatophyte isolated from the tumors was identified as Trichophyton schoenleinii.
