    A case is reported of an English woman who presented with a mass in the breast which was locally excised. Histological studies revealed a giant-cell granulomatous inflammation involving the duct system and a fungus showing brown pigmentation was demonstrated in the lesions. This was not grown in culture but the morphological appearance suggested classification in the genus Cladosporium. The relation of this to the more usual forms of cutaneous chromoblastomycosis is discussed.
