Triadelphia pulvinata, a soil hyphomycete, was found to be the cause of eczematoid, scaly, grey lesions on the skin of both eyelids of a 30-year-old Indian male living in Saudi Arabia. Repeated KOH preparations of the skin scrapings showed presence of sclerotic, branched, septate hyphae. When cultured, skin scrapings from the lesion grew the dematiaceous fungus T. pulvinata. Treatment with topical clotrimazole cured the infection, and no recurrence of the infection was noted in a 5-year follow-up.
