We report a case of localized skin infection caused by Cephalotheca foveolata in a 67-year-old male patient, who had had erythematous verrucous plaques on the right dorsum of his foot, big toe, heel and sole for 10 years. Histopathologically, chronic granulomatous inflammation and fungal elements were observed. Yellowish brown, velvety colonies and black cleistothecia were noted on the culture of biopsied tissue specimens, which were cultured on Sabouraud's dextrose agar for 8 weeks. We confirmed a new Cephalotheca species by colony, microscopic morphology and molecular analysis. The patient was treated with surgical excision by skin graft.
