Mycetoma or ‘Madhura foot’ is a chronic infection of skin and subcutaeneous tissue, fascia and bone. It is caused by true fungi (eumycetoma) or by filamentous bacteria (actinomycetoma). Since the treatment of these two etiologies is entirely different, a definite diagnosis after histopathological and microbiological examination is mandatory. We hereby present a rare case of eumycotic mycetoma involving right metatarsals with bone cyst formation.
