Mycetoma is a chronic, suppurative, localized, and destructive infection involving skin, subcutaneous tissue, fascia, muscle and sometimes invade the underlying bone. The infection is prevalent in tropical countries and involves chiefly adults. Etiologically, it is classified into eumycetoma and actinomycetoma caused by fungus and bacteria respectively. Clinically, mycetoma presents as a triad of firm to soft swelling with multiple sinuses and discharging grains of different colors. Mycetoma is reported rarely in children. We report an 11-year-old boy diagnosed with actinomycetoma of the left foot with classical clinical, histological, and radiological features.
