AbstractA case of subcutaneous phycomycosis of gluteal region in a 10-year-old boy clinically diagnosed as fibrosarcoma is presented for its rarity.Histopathology revealed broad, thin walled, faintly eosinophilic hyphae with occasional septae, inside the giant cells as well as extracellularly in a background of chronic granulomatous inflammation. Special stains like Gomoris methenamine silver, periodic acid Schiff and Masson’s trichrome, highlighted the hyphae.
