Introduction & Objective: The subcutaneous mycoses are infections involving the dermis, subcutaneous tissues and adjacent bones. These infections are usually acquired as a result of the traumatic implantation of organisms that grow as saprobes in the soil and plants. These infections develope most frequently among the rural populations of the tropical and subtropical regions of the world. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of subcutaneous mycoses and their causative agents in Fars province. Materials & Methods: Samples were taken from the patients suspected of subcutaneous mycoses with sever, chronic, suppurative and non healing lesions who referred to dermatology clinic of shiraz. Samples were cultivated on Sabouraud dextrose agar, Mycosel agar, BHI agar and blood agar supplemented with Chloramphenicole 200 mg/L, Penicillin 200000 IU/L and Streptomycin 0.3 gr/L. The cultures incubated at 25 and 37°C for at least six weeks. Fungal species were identified by traditional methods and chromagar candida media. Results: During three years, 93 patients suspected of subcutaneous mycoses were enrolled and no cases of deep mycoses were identified. Other fungal infections such as spergillosis (one case), candidiasis (one case) and nocardiasis (2 cases) were detected. The etiological agents of phaeohyphomycosis and hyalohyphomycosis were isolated by culture in five cases but their infections were not confirmed by direct or histopathological method. Conclusion: Fars province belongs to the tropical areas of Iran and the occupations of most of the people gardening, agriculture and animal breeding, which make them prone to subcutaneous mycoses. Scarecity of these diseases is the major cause of hidden cases.
