Caption: The image depicts the environment in which the woman, pictured in PHIL 15426 and 15750, lived on a daily basis, which was typical in the Virgin Islands in 1973. It was in this environment that she was infected by the fungal organism, Pseudallescheria boydii, formerly known as Petriellidium boydii, and Allescheria boydii, and subsequently developed a case of mycetoma, causing severe swelling of her left foot.
