Maduromycosis is a mycetoma infection of the extremities. Some sources restrict the definition to infections of the foot.[1][2]

According to MeSH, it can be caused by bacteria or fungi:[3]

However, according to ICD-10, "Maduromycosis" is classified at B47.0, under Eumycetoma (fungal), while B47.1 is reserved for Actinomycetoma, and B47.9 for "Mycetoma, unspecified", implying that the ICD-10 definition excludes a bacterial cause.
