We report a case of subcutaneous phaeohyphomycosis caused by Corynespora cassiicola.

In vitro antifungal susceptibility data of the strain are provided. The patient was successfully treated with oral terbinafine with topical povidone iodine in accordance with the results obtained through in vitro susceptibility testing.
