ABSTRACT: Mycetoma, though highly prevalent in some parts of India, is being reported infrequently from Chandigarh and surroundings. In an earlier study from this centre 20 cases were reported during the period from 1967 to 1977. In the present study 23 cases of mycetoma were diagnosed in sixteen years (1980-96). Actinomycotic agents were isolated in 56.5 percent patients while eumycotic agents were responsible for 43.5 percent of the mycetoma cases. Madurella mycetomatis was the agents most frequently isolated. the other agents isolated were N. asteroides, A. madurae, M. grisea and Streptomyces spp, foot is still the common site of infection. However, in the present study, males and females were found to be equally affected.
